  • Please follow the steps below under "Is Your System Ready", to test your device at least one week prior to class.
  • You cannot miss more than 15 minutes of class so it is important to walk through the test well in advance of your scheduled training date.

Please remember Virtual Classroom Trainings have the same expectations as face to face trainings; as well as some that are unique to online training.

  • Your environment can be a distraction to other participants
    • Make prior arrangements for Child Care so that you are not disturbed, please be sure other household members are aware of your training.
    • Please make sure pets are not a distraction to other participants or yourself.
  • You must be seen at all times in order to receive credit, keep yourself on mute unless you are speaking.
