August 2023

This Summer has been sizzling hot! We don’t want to cancel any more classes on hot and humid days, so the decision was made to install air conditioning! We want our teams, and our staff, cool, comfortable and MOTIVATED even when the temps are boiling.

Here are our most recent Day Training Grads!

The Summer session has filled, but not to worry! We are taking deposits for the Fall session set to begin mid October.

Want to learn more about the Day Training Program? We are currently taking deposits for the Fall session! Visit Day Training Page
