It is now a pathway for students with associate degrees to start as juniors in my public health program. It is a hands-on, technical workforce education-focused program, which is very unique in this country, and it is the only bachelor’s degree in public health that scaffolds on allied health associate degrees that I am aware of.”

The learning competencies were well-developed with materials rich in content. I also gained a wealth of detail that I shared with colleagues and families regarding early childhood educational programming.”

“Tempo Learning® worked well for me, because of the flexibility and the ability for me to work as quickly as possible.
