Class Details

This is the proposed class schedule for the next 12 weeks of the topics that I plan to cover in classes.

This list is subject to changes based on feedback from class participants and time availability; I would rather spend the extra time to answer your questions and repeat any class tasks until you are satisfied that you have learned a new building skill rather that rush through subject material in order to keep to this schedule.

I will be sending out a weekly notice to all group members to advise of each upcoming class, dates, times, topics to be covered. Any last minute changes will be advised through the Group Messages.

Don't forget to join the Let's Start Building group so that you can receive all the latest class notices and group information
