Live Courses Update

Like many of you, we continue to closely monitor coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on our nation. The safety of our students, instructors and employees remains our top priority.


Live courses will shift to Livestream courses through end of December 2020 (prior update April 24, through June)
