Classes can be hosted almost anywhere where there is proper seating and where lighting can be controlled for the use of a projector; you can provide the location or we can arrange for something in your area. To minimize the impact to everyone’s work week we can teach classes on the weekends. Class cost per student will be based on the number of students and the location of the class.
