"When I called IACET, I Got an Answer Immediately."

April 19, 2023

By Susan Jean Smith

When I called IACET, immediately Randy Bowman was on the phone to answer my questions. Mr. Bowman followed up and sent an email immediately. Boy, I was impressed that Randy Bowman wanted to help me. Then when I went to "The Ultimate Guide to Continuing Education/ Beacon Live website, I found this to be one of the most useful websites about continuing education. Amazingly, I found a quote about this organization, Beacon/Live on their website by Randy Bowman. I just wanted to share this with you.

"I really felt like I didn't just have a vendor, I had a friend, I had a partner who wanted to see me succeed and wanted to succeed along with me. You don't get that a lot in this world, but you get it with BeaconLive."
