CLASS SCHEDULING FORMAT

In order to offer you more flexibility in taking the courses you want, we have changed our approach to scheduling.  Instead of requiring students to start on a certain date and continue for a given number of weeks, you may now start most courses any week and finish at your own pace.

While we recognize the advantage of week to week attendance, we also know that "things happen" to cause you to miss a class or two.  There will be no penalty for missing and you will be entitled to attend the number of classes in your course in order to complete your project.

We are also geared up to offer most of our courses during most of our class times.  For example, our Introduction Course (3 Classes) may be  taken Monday's at 10 AM or 6 PM, & Saturdays at 9:00AM.  Generally, when you register for a course you will attend that same time and day for the course duration. Make ups and changes are allowed based on our schedule.

We hope this flexibility is to your liking.  We still ask that you pre-pay your tuition when you register, and be reminded that all students are expected to bring their tools to all classes.  In most classes students are also responsible for all materials used for their projects.  If you have any questions as to what materials are required, please raise them prior to the first class or check out the class descriptions on our web site. We do also rent tools for $25 that can be used for the duration of this class.

So plan to register for your favorite time slot featuring a class that you want to take.  As always, class sizes are limited so give us a call today. Scroll down for all class descriptions.
