Windmill Clients Say It Best

*All figures based on clients who had completed their Career Success Plan and paid in full as of March 31, 2022. These figures are conservative, as some clients are still working on obtaining their credentials during their repayment period. This may be the case for professions with a long and/or multi-part credential process, i.e. dentists and doctors.
