I had great success using the online program to do my 63 hour sales associate class. It was an easy to use program and the material was presented nicely. I passed my State Exam on my first try, the day after my Cram class. Thanks Gold Coast and Paolo!​

I cannot even began to explain how grateful I am to have been recommended to Goldcoast by my husband. With a little extra time on my hands now that the holidays are over I decided to work towards a license. Thank you Goldcoast and Marilyn! I can't wait to take post licensing and CE at this school.
