    • admin says:

      Hello Sadiq – anybody can attend but you’ll need to make your way to the US for the classes.

  23. Neal C. Martinez says:

    do you have training sessions here in the Philippines?

    • admin says:

      For all those asking about non- United States training locations (e.g. Philippines, SA, Qatar) we would love to bring this class abroad however the grant funding only permits us to conduct these classes within the United States. We don’t have an online version of this class due to the high interactivity of the class. If we can find a way to bring these outside the US, we will, but nothing planned as of yet!

  24. Juan Gutierrez says:

    I would love to attend this training, thank you very much for putting it on.
