My name is Shirley Trainor. I am taking the CWEP Course at San Francisco City College. I live in the City of Brentwood, California and I commute by Bart to get to this class. Riding Bart allows me time to read the Wedding and Event Planning book by Cho Phillips. I took the class to become a Certified Wedding Planner because I wanted to know more about Event Planning. After beginning the course I discovered it was more geared towards Weddings but the same formula can be applied towards Event Planning. I am very happy that I made the decision to do so. I have learned so much about Weddings and which I can also apply towards Event Planning. This class has also helped me complete specific areas in my business plan and helped me to offer more products and services. In this class I have also met a talented group of Women who come from Countries all over the world to learn to earn their Certifications and that I would like to keep in touch with. This has been a great experience.
