Coming into the course I was totally green. In fact, I started my Team Lead position around the time that the LFP series began. The knowledge and experiences I was exposed to while working with other members of the course is priceless. I can implement a lot of the things we’ve learned fresh out of the gate!”
There is so much learning from different aspects! Group exercises, group conversations, the breakdown of the tools, the manuals. . . It has been a great learning experience for me and it has given me more confidence and awareness of different things involving the work place.”
