Do I have to register and pay online, or can I walk in and pay for the course?
People who register online for any course will automatically have their seat reserved for the course. Walk-ins are welcomed but does not guarantee you a seat in our classes. We follow AHA guidelines and if the course is full by the time you walk in, you will not be allowed into the class as we are only allowed a certain number of students per instructor.
You can, however, try to come to any of our locations and pay and register in person before the class at any time to ensure you reserve a seat in the class you are interested in.
It is recommended if you are planning to pay for the course the day of to show up 20 minutes early to class.
