This course is held over a ten-day period. The class starts each day at 0800 and finishes at 1700. Each lesson is instructor lead. There is a complete lesson review at the conclusion of each lesson including a progress test. We do not advance to the next lesson until all students successfully pass each lesson test. This is very helpful for students to build confidence in the subject matter and prepare themselves for the final exam on the last day of class.
