Dr. Trotta’s aspiration to share his knowledge came while he was working in the corporate world. He had an opportunity to look back at his education and decided he could provide a hands-on and practitioner's approach to teaching. For more than 17 years he has had the pleasure of teaching both traditional students and the adult learners where he uses a real-world and personal experiences to enhance the learning process.
