Course Reviews

This group is focused on customer service and helping you learn the material so you can pass the exam. I dealt with Amanda and she was generous with her time and a pleasure to deal with. THANKS!!

The most helpful folks that I have worked with in 30 years. Micheal is excellent as all of the representative are. Easy course to navigate. Perfect.

This was my first time using AYPO and it was a positive experience. The course was informative and I enjoyed the videos included in the course as opposed to just reading text. I had also called the company to ask a few questions and Austin was excellent ! He was very patient when listening to my questions and very clear and concise with his answers.

I called in for some Tech assistance. I received help from Junior Kahaloae. He was super patient (I am sometimes technically challenged!) and he got me back to my class really quickly and easily. So happy to get a patient, knowledgeable tech!

This morning i had the pleasure of being assisted by Junior, he was upbeat, courteous, patient and very professional. He helped me to get logged back into my session and ensured me that he would not leave until the mission was completed. He is a great example of what Customer Service and Tech Support should be. Thanks a million, Junior.

Patric and Austin have been a huge help. When I had questions about the course, they had direct answers that I could reference, to better succeed in taking my test. I will be directing all of my contacts to your program. Thank you again

Great Educational experience, and extremely friendly, fast customer services. Would highly recommend AYPO to anyone interested.

What an expert! I was having trouble scheduling for my exam. Austin stayed with me until the end. Austin was friendly & professional all the way through. He gets 6 Stars from me..
