Amanda / Virginia
I'm a mother of four small children and McKissock made it possible for me to complete the course requirements I needed in order to become a real estate agent. I was able to work from home and on my own schedule. Thank you McKissock!

Mckissock has great courses and I think I am going to sign up for some more courses that I need to take.

This course is perfect for someone working a full-time job, and who has family responsibilites. I moved at a pace that was convenient for me, and did quite well throughout the course. I was sick for a week and it took me another week to get back on my feet. If I were taking a classroom course, I would have had to drop out. My online course allowed me the time to recover and pick up right where I left off. I had a wonderful experience with McKissock and would highly recommend it for someone with a hectic schedule.
