Instructor focus is a way to feature our instructors and tell you a little bit about them and the experience they have in the industry. There is a wealth of knowledge and a few lifetimes of experience between all of them and we are proud to feature each one so you can get to know them and the experience they bring to the classroom.

If you would like to read the experience of a specific instructor, please go to our Instructor page.
