I have been a massage therapist for over 15 years. I have taken many ethics courses. This one, is by far, the best one I have ever taken. It brings together all of the aspects of interacting with people and also yourself. It is the foundation of ethics...the Golden Rule! We have all heard that it is important to keep, but this program breaks it down into why and how to implement it in your entire life, not just as massage therapist.

The choice of this book for ethical CE is a gift. I am always involved with religious studies and a lot of times I felt as an outsider in the world. This course not only inspired me in my profession but inspired me to continue my personal growth. I was very impressed to read that there are other business people who follow ethical standards.

I'm very happy you offered this one in particular - it is the best Ethics course I've ever taken (great content), and even one of the best online courses I've taken. Great author. Also, your website and course were user friendly. Thank you.
