In addition to the online learning, our new quarterly “Crews” grant you access to 7 weekly live online Q&A sessions with one of our expert trainers. If online learning is your preference, the weekly Q&A included in our Crews is an added bonus at NO COST vs. our in person training.

Course Schedule

This online course is self-paced, typically 1-2 hours per unit.

However, if you like more interaction, you can also utilize the weekly online Live Crew Q&A Sessions to pace yourself through the course. Each Q&A session is a 1 hour Zoom call that begins at 4pm MST each Thursday from Orientation Day through Unit 9.  Reminders are sent out one week prior to each Q&A Session, so you don’t have to worry about missing them!
