When I began the ISS course, I was already a hairstylist for 28 years, and a transcript proofreader for three years and wanted to expand my business to include scoping. The thought of going back to school again while working full time and raising three teenagers was daunting to say the least. Immediately after I began the course, I was excited! Everything in the course was easy to understand and grasp. As I got into the notereading unit I thought I would never catch on. But everything was laid out so well, I feel like I caught on pretty easily. One of my favorite parts of the course is it never felt cold or robotic. I enjoyed the funny anecdotes, the course always keeps your interest, and I always felt encouraged. The fact that it is self-paced really came in handy when I had busy times with my work. I really feel prepared to start my new career in scoping! Thank you for creating this course and giving so many of us this fabulous opportunity to be able to be freelance and work at home!
