Wow, an email from a real person and not a pre-written response.  That is very refreshing.  I will be sure to recommend this site to others in my field!
Thank you for your quick response.  I can take unlimited courses for up to one year?  That means I can apply some of the courses for this year’s  deadline, and take additional courses after that toward my next period deadline!
I chose your company because of the price, and I'm certainly happy with that!  I am thankful that there is Continuing Education that is so affordable.  Thanks for responding!
