Came in thinking I would dread this course but our instructor, Andre, made everything very engaging and informative. I really learned a lot. 10/10 recommend.
It was a great class Mr.Andre is very responsive and nice to the class. Answered all questions I would give him 2 thumbs up !!!
This course was 1st rate. Mr. Andre was beyond knowledgeable and kept challenging me to critically think of my past choices that could have resulted in much worse than just a DUI.This course demonstrates that NO ONE is exempt from addiction and that WE ALL can benefit from the self awareness that this course has brought me.I really think that Barber's risk assessment program SHOULD be a requirement to obtain a license to drive in Georgia.It speaks for itself and it is clear to me that ALL drivers and families will walk away empowered to make better life decisions, in general.Keep up the good work!!!

Instructor was well rounded, kept our attention and was able to explain the program in a real world examples to where everyone would understand. He was quick to answer questions, while also asking us questions to feel more opened with the class.
