In fairness to students and instructors, this is adult education and behavior is expected to be respectful to all. Appropriate listening and kindness are expected in communication and humor, in person, online, as well as in social media. Once the course has begun if a student misses a week-end, they may attend a future class at no extra cost, and refunds (less processing fees) are given five days prior to course beginning.  We welcome students to come and tour our campus, view manuals and ask about special training aids, and meet with instructors, who are happy to answer all your questions. Students may return to future classes for refresher for free upon permission of instructors.
