“I immensely enjoyed taking a Futures class with Jerry Baldwin. He's enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge, personally connects with everybody in the room and frequently touches base to make sure you're on the same page and not being left behind. Jerry's an all around terrific instructor.”

“My OTA Futures Class instructor (JB) I attended with this week is awesome. The course materials are covered during the class sessions in such a way that the book is not being read, instead you are afforded with the strategy, techniques and applications (interactive/hands-on). I call this the magic recipe. Now the odds are in my favor, to turn this magic recipe into a winning lottery ticket. The next step is putting in time (practice) and apply the technique. Thank you, OTA and JB!”
