“Enrolling in SEI was the best decision I could have made for myself and the future of my company. All of the courses are packed full of information that you just do not get at most certificate programs. And I am speaking from experience. Jill Moran and her staff take students to another level with reading assignments and practical applications used in SEI’s training courses. I did not even realize how much I did not know, and had been in business for a year and half and completed a ‘certificate’ course in the wedding industry before enrolling in SEI. I am more competent and confident than ever thanks to my connection with SEI. If you are serious about working in the special events industry, I highly encourage you to enroll in SEI. Your return on investment is immediate; the tools, techniques, information, and processes you learn throughout the various courses are invaluable. ”  Class of 2015
