A Few Words from Others

Hear from several of the many graduates of the paralegal certificate program regarding their experience in PDI's paralegal certificate program.

"As a man making a career change late in life, choosing the right Paralegal school was a very different process. PDI-UNT exceeded all of my expectations. The instructors were extraordinary. The staff is top-notch. It was challenging, but I learned more in 8 weeks than I learned in years of college courses. I would pay twice what I did if I had to do it again. It was well worth the money. Thank you PDI." -Dennis R.

"Thank you PDI! I got my first paralegal job (with no prior experience) the Friday before graduation. I will be getting a $10,000 raise! Hooray! I really enjoyed the program, and obviously, it helped me greatly in beginning my new career!" -Sara S.

"My experience at PDI has been the most informative of my life. Of all the traditional schools and colleges I have attended, I have learned more in eight weeks than over several years. The hands-on knowledge and experiences of each instructor makes all the difference in my ability to understand and apply the abundance of information; I utilize it on my job and in my personal life as well. Thank you for this life changing experience." -Tish H.

"For the cost and time this program is the best for anyone who is thinking of making a career change and becoming a paralegal. You will gain insight into the position and knowledge of a variety of legal areas to help you plan your future." -Lisa A.
