The previously in-person course has been revamped! Take note of the reduced registration rate for the online course. The course is now held over 4 days, from 9 – 11 am (CT) and 12 – 2 pm (CT) each day. Additionally, each morning begins with an optional 8:30 am (CT) “Ask Me Anything” session to take advantage of the expertise and guidance of our experienced instructors.
