My Tips Winners

The Institute is committed to including content developed by our community of users. Therefore, we recognize
two people every month who have identified a possible need for improvement in the Institute's online classes.

The Institute has created a My Tips/Feedback button within our online courses. Located at the bottom of each slide,
this button provides users with the opportunity to give feedback at anytime. If users find a typo or have a suggestion
for improving any course, all they need to do is click on the My Tips/Feedback button to make a contribution.


Winners are awarded $50!
