"The instructor for my certificate program, Natlie Johnson, was excellent. She was helpful, answered my questions right away, graded my assignments in a timely manner, provided great feedback, etc. My career counelor at Gatlin, was also very helpful when I needed him. I truly enjoyed the course content and learning about physical activity for older adults. I found the written projects for each course to be enjoyable. I liked that they covered a wider variety of topics."
