Although I thought it would be difficult, studying Accounting has been a rewarding challenge. Thanks to the help of my teacher and personal effort, it has been much easier to understand.
VAS has been an amazing experience. I have accomplished so much during the course and I have expanded my career knowledge vastly. Office staff, along with the teachers I have had - Ms. Schulthess, Ms. DeRochemont, are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Their teachings gave me confidence to ensure nothing but success and promise for a bright future. I would encourage anyone and everyone to sign up & look into classes. It’s never too late to learn the skills for a new and fulfilling career.
