“I have always wanted to take the course and I’ve finally found the time to do so. This course is very hands-on and has laid great groundwork for ultrasonics. I have great respect for Anna Pattison.”

Dr. Joyce Kwiatkowki-Spieler

“Anna Pattison has a great personality. The information taught is very important and relevant. I enjoyed the small-setting of the classroom. I chose USC because it offers 24 CE units at one time, it provides great convenience. I like that this course has great academic focus.”
