STUDY AND ARRIVE AT CLASS PREPARED WITH QUESTIONS
Attending this class is just like attending a college course. It’s important that you review the curriculum prior to each class and be sure to ask questions if you need clarity.
Classes are interactive as well. The format and atmosphere allow students to discuss issues and situations they are confronted with daily.
Instructors are all volunteering their time and expertise to the association and industry.
