We remain closed, but we're committed to keep classes going through the next few weeks.

All classes that are normally scheduled for the next few weeks will continue, either by being re-scheduled, or in some cases, through livestreaming. If you're worried about cancellations, don't. Your class will be delivered one way or another.
We will communicate with all registered students via email. Please be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see any announcements.
Like all small businesses, we rely on our registrations to keep the school going. Without training opportunities, those looking for new careers in the next year will not have the education they need to move on. That's why we're committed to postponing classes, rather than cancelling them.
