Werner designed the course with veterans and the broader military community in mind, civilians are also welcome to enroll.  In fact, each year an equal number of veterans and/or active duty military personnel and civilians enroll, making for a very interesting and worthwhile class for all those involved.

Before Werner offered the course he spent a year gaining the trust of the veteran community on the University of Utah campus.

Werner’s class was covered by the Utah Local News in 2012. See the full article here
