“I have been taking courses from UAC since October 2019. I have had amazing support all along the way, Jennifer has taken care of my every need with friendly support. When I was apprehensive about taking more on and worried about how to pay for tuition with a limited amount of funds, I found support and comfort from Cindy Jorgensen. My coaches, Adam Syvock, Clay Neves, Robyn Mons, Veronica with Virtual Roadmap and Roger have never left me wanting. I was shocked when I received a call from the president of the school to discuss an upcoming event with me! Yes, personal attention from ALL of the staff. I started this journey with the simple intent of doing a better job where I was employed. UAC give me far more than I bargained for. After 20 months of working closely with UAC, I find myself owning my own business and onboarding clients as fast as I can handle. There is something amazing about realizing that YOU can be free from working harder and harder as an employee and hoping you might get a raise, and opening up the opportunity to create something you love and is uniquely yours. (AND you can be in charge of the raises you get!) UAC has helped me to gain so much, not only for my career, but for all aspects of my life. Best choice I’ve been brave enough to make! Thank you UAC!” – Teena Chandler

 

“Being coachable is one of life’s most important skills and attitudes, whether or not you’re an athlete. If you’re any kind of person who wishes to grow, learn, improve, excel or peak perform, you should care about whether or not you’re coachable. In other words, being coachable relates to a happy, productive life.” – Laura Di Franco
