We are now able to offer Onsite Training!!!

  

We are monitoring updates by the Alabama Department of Public Health and CDC for any changes in recommendations. All Students that plan to attend classes at the school will be required to do an appropriate (20 second) hand wash before class and after. 


Stay home if you or anyone in the family doesn’t feel well, officials are also recommending that at-risk individuals should avoid crowds and take other steps to protect themselves. "At-risk" is defined as anyone over the age of 60 or anyone of any age with a chronic medical condition including heart disease, lung disease or diabetes.

Everyone needs to choose a training method that meets their personal needs.
