IN-PERSON CLASSES

We care about your training needs and hope to be able to offer the in-person classes below for those of you who prefer that format. We also care about your health and safety and will be implementing the following protocols to protect you and our instructors at our publicly available classes:

  • Surfaces will be disinfected prior to class
  • Masks are optional
  • Windows and doors may be at least partially open to encourage air flow (consider layering up)
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in our classrooms
  • We are requesting that you bring your own pen/pencil and paper, to avoid sharing materials

If circumstances force our cancellation of in-person classes (or a shift to an online format), we will contact those who are registered. Likewise, if COVID conditions or protocols lead you to want to cancel your attendance, please let us know by noon the day before your class and we will issue you a full refund.
