What Students Are Saying

“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!”
