COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") UPDATE
In an effort to comply with the directive of health officials, we are currently taking steps to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19 ("Coronavirus").
With this understanding, we are offering our spring sessions totally on-line in our virtual classroom. All in-class portions of our certification program will be delivered via online presence. Students will still be able to interact with instructors and other students, preserving the "live instruction" feel of face-to-face-interaction.
Thank you for your understanding during this time. We are committed to your safety as we look forward to the future!
A message from our CEO:
