Until we can end physical distancing due to COVID-19 all of our classes are being conducted as live, interactive webinars. Using GoToWebinar, we can create virtual classrooms with instructor-led training, and we can include input, questions, and feedback from each attendee. If the device you connect with does not have a microphone and speaker, you can use a dial-in phone number to speak directly with us. We have been conducting webinar-based training since 2010, and it seems that all of us will need to use this as platform well into the future. We encourage you to give it a try - we think you'll enjoy the experience!
