How Can I Participate?

We recommend you start with this session! When you register for our classes you will have access to one of our classes. All our classes are live and are held in an online classroom. In our case, we use an application called Adobe Connect to conduct our classes. We run all our classes on the internet so you can participate from home or at work using your desktop computer, laptop, phone or iPad. After you register, we will send more instructions about how to connect to our classroom and a call in phone number to use so you will be able listen and ask questions during the class. That’s right you will be using a phone when you are getting started. It is a toll free number so you won’t be charged to use it.
