What are they saying
I have enjoyed my instruction time with Carrie and Adriana. I am looking forward to completing the course and receiving my certification.
BASI is an amazing program! Being that I was brand new to any sort of teaching career, I jumped right into this without any other certs or college courses on anatomy.
I loved every minute of the course, and look forward to completing the Comprehensive course in the future.
