Real Testimonials from Living, Breathing, Approachable People who have Completed this Boredom Free ARISE Online Course.
“This training exceeded my expectations. What I found most helpful about it was the way in which it was delivered. The presenter was very clear and the classroom was very interactive. Also the user interface for the content itself was well done; easy to navigate and to keep track of what I had done. I particularly found the step by step instructions of how to best utilize the ARISE curricula very helpful. I was looking forward to working with the kids already but this training just got me even more so! The presenter in the video clips of an actual training was wonderful and it was refreshing to see an instructor with such zest. In general I found the ARISE formula to be very beneficial. I also felt that it gives you the flexibility to tailor things to your own sessions. The online portal was very good and I believe this training will be of benefit to anyone seeking quality training for youth in the human services sector.”

“I live in Northern Canada, so being able to access the training from my office was fantastic!!! It can be difficult to access training when you live so far north! I really enjoyed the format, and flexibility of the course. The staff at ARISE were WONDERFUL to work with, and quick to help me resolve any issues I encountered while completing the course. I will definitely take more training from ARISE in the future! Jolliett was also AMAZING! I really enjoyed her style and learning from her!” See the complete evaluation.

“Despite the fact that it was an online training, the video sessions made me feel as though I was in the classroom with the other students. I really liked this training. At first I was skeptical, now I’m convinced that this was an excellent training program. I received several good suggestions for how to make my presentations more effective. I feel prepared to teach ARISE life skills lessons. ”
“The videos are the best. It was like being at an actually training but better. If I missed something, I just watched it again until I got it. The reference material is great and the additional material offered at the end of the course is fabulous. I want to continue to exchange ideas and comments. I would love to work with ARISE on a project someday. With your help, we at Hood County Counseling Center can help all folks succeed in life. Thank you for helping us achieve our goals.”
“The training exceeded my expectations. Even though it was a trainer on video, the trainer was enthusiastic about what she was teaching and it helped me want to pay attention. The ARISE formula is very helpful. It was a great training, especially since it was online and it could have become boring and uninteresting. I feel prepared to teach ARISE life skills as a result of this online training.”
This is an excellent training for new group leaders. The ARISE teaching formula being played out in each session was helpful. This course was fun and easy to go through. The use of video clips of an actual training helped me understand how to present the materials in a classroom group setting.”
“The convenience of doing the lessons at my own pace, and the ability to watch the training being done by the instructor… a feeling of being in the class, without actually being there!”
“I recently took the ARISE training online and I found it to be absolutely fantastic. The training was wonderful. Even though I was taking the class online with the instructor in the video, the worksheets, the forums, the encouragement and praise, I felt like I was right in the class room with them! I learned so much from this training that I can take right out into my line of work now! Thank you for the feedback. I had no idea you responded to the assignments. I loved it. This training taught me how to be approachable when teaching the class and how to get people to participate, even when they don’t normally do so. I feel that I have so much more knowledge that is going to help so many people and I couldn’t be happier, especially to know that I have been trained by whom I feel is the BEST! Thanks ARISE!”

“This training was much better than I anticipated. The training of “ teaching” should be a prerequisite for all teachers in every school. This online course was much better than what they teach you in college. The Japanese school clip was amazing? Unforgettable training.”
