Feedback From Online Academy Students

“I love the program because it is very engaging and supportive. Online helps me to develop myself without sacrificing my time, so I am able to progress fast.”

– Jenny Juric, Erickson graduate and coach

“My expectations have been exceeded – it’s been a lot of fun! I feel lucky to be part of a learning format that is deeply personal and interactive.”

 – Chuck Genuardi, Erickson graduate

“I never felt as if I was just sitting on the other end of the line listening to someone talk for hours on end. Despite the online nature of the class (and the possibility for multiple distractions at home) I remained deeply engaged in our lessons and the engagement and interaction definitely led to a close bond and high level of trust not only with our instructor, but with each other. Due to the personal nature of coaching and possible topics during a practice session I find this level of trust and comfort with the other students most valuable.”
