While I was a non-traditional student at FVCC in Kalispell, my employer directly benefited from the desktop publishing, accounting and other classes I took. My employer did not pay for my classes or offer me company time to take the classes. In fact, my employer threatened to fire me when I needed to take one class during the workday.
