Testimonial

All the best as you continue to develop and grow Brighton. You all have done amazing work for us at Nemours and DEPDNow.com – work that really makes our content come alive! It has been delightful to change my (previously) negative opinion about online training. And the data tells the story about how quickly people in Delaware embraced this way of learning! Brighton helped us produce a large library of online courses for DEPDNow.com and the growth of the program is amazing to see –

  • The rate of successful course completions is doubling every quarter as more early care and education providers learn about our online training options.
  • There are over 8,000 diverse early care and education professionals in DE who can take our online courses as one way to meet their training requirements.
  • We have already had over 1,200 successful online course completions within the first 12 months.
  • Nearly 100% of users would recommend the online courses to their colleagues.
  • Our users report 90-98% high satisfaction regarding ease of use, value of the content, their ability to put what they learn into action, etc.
