With the ongoing risks associated with Covid-19 we have decided to deliver a number of our courses in a new online format. In an effort to make these as close to an in-class experience as possible, these courses will be delivered by a live instructor in real-time and they will run for the same lengths and times that the in-class course would have. So a 5 day course that would run from 8-4 pm from Monday to Friday will still run the same way with the same instructor, you'll just be listening and interacting with your live instructor from the safety of your computer instead of being in a physical classroom. Keeping you safe while providing opportunities to acquire your CEU's is our top priority.
