Course Outline

Trust the process… step by step.

Good words to keep us moving towards any goal are found on the wall in the Student Lounge at the Center as a gentle reminder of encouragement along the way.

Our 600 hour course includes each of the following classes. Some topics are covered in depth while others are introductions to add to the solid, broad-based foundation in the profession. All classes are instructor-supervised with most of the classes occurring on-campus. There are instructor-supervised field trips for topics directly related to the content of the class as indicated below.
