Student Testimonials:

“I thought Dr. Isberner was a wonderful instructor.  He takes TSE very seriously and prepares his students on every aspect of traffic safety!  Great program and the distant learning is wonderful!  If you did not offer distant learning I would of never been able to take the courses!” 

“I feel well prepared in my new topic area and feel that these courses allowed me to become knowledgeable and professional in this area.  I am ready to teach new up-to-date concepts and displays several methods of learning all in one classroom.  Dr. Brad was an excellent teacher who has a passion for TSE and that has really carried over to the students of the class to display the same passion about TSE as well. Thank you.” 

“I really enjoyed everything about the TSE program and Dr. Isberner was awesome and always was willing to help with anything or any questions I had.  He has a real passion for Driver’s Training and I believe that it rubs off on his students and I know he definitely influenced me and the way that I prepared and will continue to prepare to educate my driver education students.”
