We are happy to bring our classes listed above to your school, church, business or other organization. We ask that your group have at least 8 people. Ideally, you can provide the equipment to show a DVD, but we can bring a laptop and projector if needed. Contact Andrea Lappin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (903) 583-4339 to learn more and schedule your class at your location.
Can’t make it to one of our classes? Please know we strongly encourage people to take a class in person, because the quality of learning is better because there is an opportunity to discuss the materials and ask questions. However, we also believe that taking the class on-line is better than not taking the class at all. Below are links to some on-line training options.
