Lack of guidance.

A combination of classroom and online work with an approach of one on one studies and multiple activities and labs that offer both field and lab practice giving a general knowledge and idea of cases and situations that could occur on the field of practice.

“I would definitely advise them to research more about this before spending hours learning about it to realize that it isn't what they want to be doing. Many people don't realize what they're going into at first and change their mind so it's very important to make sure this is something you really want to do. If it is then I would also say for them to study consistently in order to retain all of the information and remember it because it is a lot.”
