[CCRP testimonial from Edgar Guzman]
  "The Pace CCRP class was of true value, especially Professor James and his experience as a management consultant domestically and abroad. Professor Lewis's background in the legal aspects of regulation and compliance were insightful, but the guest speakers and their real-world experience made the program comprehensive and an instrumental part of enhancing our knowledge."
  - Edgar Guzman, consultant
