All of our classes have minimum and maximum enrollments that can be accepted. If a class is getting close to being full, we may close online enrollment.

STAYING OVERNIGHT?

The best option would be to stay right at the hotel where the class is taught, so we try to set up room blocks for students at lower than listed prices. This is not always available however. When calling, ask the front desk about this. If they are not aware, try the sales office. NOTE: Before doing this, check out discount websites such as hotels.com, trivago.com or tripadvisor.com. Sometimes there are nearby hotels, some even within walking distance, that offer better rates.
