“We chose to use Whatcom Community College as our primary contract training provider because Whatcom is able to provide a very high caliber of training and education, tailored to our needs, for a very reasonable price. The instructors from Whatcom are extremely knowledgeable, but they maintain an accessible format that is appropriate for the wide variety of people we have on staff. Additionally, the instructors have been very flexible, which is key when scheduling classes for people who provide care around-the-clock. But, the real advantage is in the results! The classes were so popular, successful, and results-oriented last year that we have decided to repeat them this year in order to reach more of our staff members.”
