To our beloved teachers, administrators and staff,
It is a great privilege to have taken part in such a wonderful program at ERS.
On behalf of all the members, we wish to express our utmost gratitude for your support, validation, motivation and expertise.
We have followed a difficult journey and have successfully passed the challenges that have now transformed into a noble learning experience, blessed with new-found skills and friendships made. We have gained the courage and self-esteem to face newer challenges which go beyond textbooks and certificates. We have learned to appreciate one another and realize the importance of embracing, and allowing ourselves to be embraced, by a supportive organization – the tools often needed to keep us strong and hopeful, remembering that one cannot always stand alone in order to be successful. We will take all that we have learned and not let our studies fade in vain.
We – the humbled members of ERS thank you. We will miss you and always remember you as we now unfold and step into our greatness.
With love and appreciation,
Mary-Ann – ERS Training Participant

Fabulous experience. I have been recommending this course to others. I am very fortunate to have taken this course. It was very uplifting. I can’t believe it’s free!
Excellent decision I made to take this course. I am very pleased that I have knowledge of the computer programs (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, etc.).
My experience at ERS was very positive. Being in a group who are in a similar situation as I am, helped me to get motivated to work hard and embark on the path of finding a job. Instructors and coordinators really work very hard and were well prepared on topics that needed to be discussed.

She is a great computer teacher. The material she presented was concise. When I had a question, she was helpful.
I found the computer class so helpful and necessary.
Very knowledgeable and charismatic. Made learning Microsoft office enjoyable. Very patient and good at simplifying concepts and information.
Our computer teacher is very patient, and that is very important in this case because most of us do not know computers and we feel reassured and confident the way he helped us and believed in us…..his help, patience, and encouragement and his happy personality made my computer fears go away. Now I'm confident enough to go back to college.
She is very patient, understanding and always ready to help. She listens and teaches very well. I will like to express my thanks to her. I am grateful.
I loved it all. I gained my confidence back again. I have noticed a big improvement in my speaking and writing of the French Language.
She is a great teacher, she has patience, explains really well and encourages us, she is always concerned about us, in our learning as well as personal. She's positive, always very professional but warm person as well. We are very lucky to have her as our teacher.
The French teacher was very good and she was patience with everyone and took her time help the ones that needed the help and she explained everything really well.
They were helpful in improving self-awareness and self-esteem.
I really enjoyed the personal development topics and found them interesting. I always learned something from these sessions and looked forward to them. It is important to know how to stand up for oneself in the workplace while stilling being polite about it. Stress management was great and positive thinking too. We can always benefit from being reminded about these things. I didn't prefer one topic over the other. I found them all to be interesting and beneficial.
I cannot emphasize enough how beneficial this was to me and should be added to school curriculum too.
Very useful. We do not learn this type of stuff in our education in Canada. Helped me learn a lot about myself and provide a direction in life for my career.
