Can I visit the Institute anytime, or do I have to come on during specific program for a whole program?
You will receive the greatest benefit if you complete a program; however, if you can only attend part of a program, that can be arranged. If you can only participate for one week of a two-week program, it’s best to come for the first week. Graduates can come anytime.
If I come for one week of a two-week program, can I complete the second week later and receive certification?
You may receive certification if you complete all classes within one year.
