Q: What happens if the course is closes?
A: If the course fills up and is closed, you can choose to add yourself to the waiting list. If a spot becomes available we will contact you, via email, and notify you of the open spot. Every effort will be made to accommodate you – we’ve been known to create new class sections to meet your needs.
