Old or New this school provides excellent classes.. I have been in the business for 20 years and this is where it all started for me! From day one Donaldson has kept their promises providing up to date education to further careers.. Two of my children have also graduated from Donaldson and there isn’t a company out there that compares to it.. I just finished up the Superstars 2.0 class and it was phenomenal!!! Never a boring moment, keep us waiting for more.. Even as an experienced agent I learned. Education is the key to success and they know how to teach it.. Not your ordinary class!! IT’S A MUST !!!! Thanks Chris !! Keep up the great work “
