Note re: Covid-19 scheduling

We are happy to have returned to in-person scheduling for most of our initial certification classes.  There is still a possibility that some classes could be converted to online webinars in response to Covid-19 infection rates or other factors.  Should that happen, this class will be held as two days of online webinar instructions and one day of in-person activities.  All registrants will be notified promptly of any such change in delivery.
