How Does it Work?

Online Classes

Denise’s guided online classes are offered through FDSA.  Each class is six weeks long and is comprised of written lecture, numerous videos, and active forums where you can watch your classmates progress with detailed instruction and feedback from Denise.  Note the registration dates!  Bronze level is $65


Webinars are a fantastic introduction to the world of online learning!  You will learn about a specific topic of you choice for approximately one to two hours, with plenty of time at the end for your questions.  A recording will be made available to you after the fact, so live attendance is NOT required. $19.95 each.

FDSA Training Camp

Held once a year and rotated through a variety of locations, Denise presents several sessions during camp where she provides hands on feedback to the participants.  A three day auditing spot is $235 per person.
