The program will be delivered LIVE using Zoom Webinar. To accommodate time-zone issues, we will be delivering the webinar using what we call the EZ-Schedule. Each day the class will run for six (6) hours:

11:00am – 5:00pm Eastern

10:00am – 4:00pm Central

9:00am – 3:00pm Mountain

To ensure we cover the entire 24 hours of course material the webinar will run four (4) days. In addition, each evening we will hold an optional online Zoom meeting for attendees to address any questions that were not addressed during the webinar.
