In-Person Now Open with Limited Availability & Capacity

  • Starting on July 27th, weekday classes will be available in-person or live online with an extended free retake period and flexible rescheduling. Specify your learning method at checkout.
  • Classes or programs that started before July 27th, and weeknight & weekend classes will continue to be held online only until further notice. 
  • Due to health & safety precautions, in-person attendance will be limited to approximately one-third of normal capacity to ensure a distance of 6 feet between participants. See below for a complete guide to our safety precautions upon reopening.
  • In-person attendance will be booked on a first come first served basis (based on registration date and selected preference prior to class start). We expect in-person seating for many courses to sell out.

Health & Safety Guidelines & Precautions

Upon reopening, we will be implementing strict social distancing and sanitation guidelines as follows: 

  • Provide and maintain hand hygiene stations, including handwashing with soap, water, and paper towels, or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Limit class sizes to ensure a distance of 6 feet between all occupants
  • Conduct regular cleaning and disinfection before and after each class, and conduct frequent cleaning in common areas and restrooms
  • Face coverings will be provided and required for all trainees and employees
  • Post signage throughout the site to remind participants and employees to adhere to proper hygiene, social distancing rules, appropriate use of PPE, and cleaning and disinfecting protocols
  • Post social distancing markers using tape or signs that denote 6 ft. of spacing in commonly used and other applicable areas on the site
  • Mandatory health screening assessment (e.g. questionnaire, temperature check) each day and for employees and trainees, asking about (1) COVID-19 symptoms in past 14 days, (2) positive COVID-19 test in past 14 days, and/or (3) close contact with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case in past 14 days.
