Customer Testimonials

What our customers are saying:

“Any time I can take a class pertaining to law, I am overwhelmed.  [AINS] FOIA law training was more than a focus on the exemptions.  The class covered an entire overview of FOIA taking us from the inception of FOIA to the current day laws”.  

- Cornelia Burkhalter, FOIA Specialist
