"This was an excellent course! The content was very clear and the format was easy to use. The videos, practice exercises and worksheets combined to make the online learning experience much like an in-person, hands-on class. The material is consistent with the current research and practice in the science of human behavior. I strongly recommend this training to anyone in a position to teach others or help them to develop beneficial habits!"

Laraine Winston BCBA, LMHC

"The content presentation is excellent, the videos wonderful. The course and concepts deserve all the support that can be given."

Jill Kolar – School Teacher (retired)

"I love the online course. It is clear that a great deal of time, expertise and attention went into its creation. The use of Scott’s supporting documentation is very user friendly. My impression was that it resulted in a high-end professional experience for the user."

Danielle G. Theule-  DDS, CPDT, KPA CTP, TAGteacher Level 1, CGC Evaluator – Canis Jedi Canine Training

"I had so much fun participating in the TAGteach Online Course! The layout is extremely well-organized and very user-friendly. The content of each Lesson is excellent, while watching and practicing TAGteach skills along with each engaging video and interactive worksheets. I refer to the handouts frequently while developing my own personal and professional goals and success points. I just referred to Lesson 3: A New Perspective Section, during a class with our client and dogs while teaching foundation skills. It was very helpful guidance while phrasing in the positive! Thank you for bringing TAGteach to an online course."

Laura Monaco Torelli, CPDT, KPACTP - Animal Behavior Training Concepts and Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training & Behavior, Student Application Coordinator

"I appreciate the behavior analytic approach, as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. I love the application of practice and guided instruction within the online class format, and thought the videos were very helpful (since I was unable to attend a live training)."
