What Our Students Say About Leadership & Development Training and Certifications

"In all the correspondence, training and support I’ve had from New Horizons, I highly recommend their services to any individual or company seeking personal or professional development. Some courses I’ve completed include Managerial Leadership, Excel 2010 Part 1-3 and Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Boot Camp. I’ve taken these courses in their Online Live mode, greatly appreciated, as well as at their clean and comfortable Anaheim location. Each course was taught by an expert in the field who provided insight to real-life challenges and brought energy and relevance to the topics. This, along with instructors’ concise and relatable content, has helped me apply my training in my daily duties as a project manager."
