As a father of four children, having flexibility is very important. Brandman* had the flexibility that allowed me to continue to work full time in order to provide for my family. At the same time I was able to take my courses from the comfort of my home where I was also able to be close to my family. Thanks to the ABA program I have been given the opportunity for career advancement at my job.
