This course definitely taught me what I needed to know from taking it!


- attended our Facebook Advertising class

4.39 out of 5

Sonya is an exceptional instructor. Online courses are tricky but she has very good pacing, energy and excellent examples so engagement was high. The nature of this course (intro to everything) makes it tricky to cover all of the bases well and doesn't allow for individual work to solidify the learning. However, Sonya did very well taking all of this into account. She drew out examples from us and used that to illustrate some of the concepts, which would make it more meaningful to the students.

Sonja was great. She is very well informed and very knowledgeable.

Sonja was an excellent instructor. I had a great experience and would take a course with her as the trainer again.


- attended our Social Media for Business class

4.77 out of 5

Sonja was a great instructor! She knows her way around social media. Loved that she showed so many site and made suggestions. However, I am new to social media. Getting use to the lingo. Example: what is a G O? I would suggest having a "BASIC new to social media" course as that would have benefited me on a higher scale. Feel a little overwhelmed. Step by step processes would be helpful. Still a great course. Wish I had taken a beginner course then this course.


- attended our Social Media for Business class

4.57 out of 5

Really enjoyed Sonja's class. She was very helpful in answering questions and providing specific feedback.


- attended our Social Media for Business class

4.96 out of 5

Our instructor Sonja was extremely knowledgeable on the information and I felt very at ease throughout the entire class. She explained things in a way that made them easy to understand and also make great use of the time. I feel like I have gotten a lot out of this class and can't wait to apply what I have learned.


- attended our Social Media for Business class

4.83 out of 5

Our instructor Sonja was excellent; she allowed time for questions as we went along and explained areas that needed extra explanation.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Certstaff class! I didn't have high hopes for this class, and was completely blown away. Our instructor, Sonja Williams was fantastic. She was easy to hear, understand, and taught at a great pace! She answered everyone's questions in great detail, and I would highly recommend her!


- attended our Social Media for Business class

4.83 out of 5

I really enjoyed the course and the perspective of the instructor on social media. Very easy to follow and I can take this information and use it within my organization.


- attended our Social Media for Business class

4.61 out of 5

I learned alot from this course today and am excited to take what i learned and apply it to the business I currently work for


- attended our Instagram For Business class

4.17 out of 5

I appreciate the instructor's willingness to allow questions throughout any part of the class, but it came to a point where I was extremely distracted and frustrated with the number of interruptions that took place due to questions. Perhaps designating specific Q&A portions or advising attendees to type their questions into the chat would be more conducive to a better learning experience for everyone. Also, encouraging everyone to keep themselves muted unless speaking would be much appreciated.


- attended our Facebook Advertising class

4.89 out of 5

Great course. The instructor took the time to tailor it to specific students' needs. I liked the activities where she asked us what we plan to do or change. I would suggest more interaction like this and a little less lecture. Overall, excellent though.
