Recent testimonials from some of our IMRA graduates...

"The beauty of this course is that you put into practice what you study. I have taken technology classes before, been inspired but never really used much of the information in my daily work. With this class, you actually get to test your knowledge and skills. I already feel that I am a better library assistant because of the newly gained knowledge..."

Helle V., Piedmont Unified

" If you are debating whether or not to take this class, or if you have been nudged in this direction, take a deep breath and hang on for the ride! This course was so much more than I had expected. You will gain so much information, receive confirmation, and you will have a tremendous amount of support available to you, not only from your teachers but from your classmates. From the 8-week fully packed course, I have already been able to adapt some of the information right into my Library Media Tech position."
