“Although I had over 20+ years in the field of Human Resources, I wanted an independent verification/validation of my HR knowledge…I concluded the best class was the one offered by Franceen Fallett through CSU Channel Islands’ Extended University…Franceen has decades of valuable HR experience and put bluntly, knows her stuff...Franceen is a practicing teacher… and knows how to prepare a student to take an exam…I know I would not have been passed if I hadn’t taken Franceen’s class.”
