Hear from one of our students

I am very excited to be a Point Blank student and I feel I have learned so much in just the few weeks that I have been studying. I love how the online modules are setup, how we are able to meet 1-2-1 with our instructor, and how interactive the course is. Whether it is links, video examples, or suggested resources, as a student I feel this is a great way to dive deeper into our studies and it is all placed right in-front of us. So far, I am very pleased with my course and I am looking forward to learning more. Thank you for founding this school! For the longest time I was looking for something like this and I am so grateful I came across Point Blank. - Joseph, online student
