Thank you for the very succinct, well-organized [WHMIS 2015] course for us this evening. You have the professionalism and experience combined to understand and work with students' strengths.

The Second Career program gave me the opportunity to begin the next chapter of my life. As for the staff at NCDS, I have one word — unbelievable. They are professional and at the same time you know that they truly care.

A Very Successful Second Career Student!!

Hooray...I got the job offer today! I needed my First Aid, which I owe tons of thanks to you guys for! I just have to get a medical examination and attend 8 weeks of school in Thunder Bay at Confederation College. After that, in November, the job begins, as a full time Jail Guard. Thank you for all your help along the way, I greatly appreciate it!

Cathy is a really great instructor. She designs it for the local area and teaches with examples instead of reading from a textbook. It was the most enjoyable CPR course I have taken.
