Student Notes:

  • Attention: Due to the demand for this course, a one week cancellation is required, if you are registered and fail to cancel at least one week (7 days) prior to the first day of class you will not be considered for this training for the next class offered.  This is to give consideration to those that are on a wait list and to also fill the current class.
  • This class is not a PowerPoint class, however, it is recomended that students bring a laptop computer to the training.
