The instructor is a subject matter expert who encourages full classroom participation. You walk away from this class with an excellent understanding of the TradeStation tool. I strongly recommend this class to anyone who is going to trade.”

“The futures course was very practical and was taught by an experienced practitioner, Mr. Jerry Baldwin. He makes the class fun so we have a good time while we learn... and he makes us do a number of hands on exercises so we can learn by doing.”

“We had a great team atmosphere and Jerry Baldwin is a great and enthusiastic instructor that kept everyone moving along together. We were able to see live real life examples of the tools and strategies working this week which made it very "real." I learned a lot and I'm excited about getting to work and progressing in my trading career. I'd highly recommend taking the futures class with OTA and especially Jerry Baldwin. ”

I really liked how he allowed the students to hash through things and how exited he was when we got the concepts he was teaching. The facility is great, good food, the staff is hospitable. I had a great experience.”
