These labs typically run Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, and are typically offered consistently over the Fall and Winter semesters (September through April)*. Our 5th Class (100-hour) lab typically runs 2.5 weeks in length, while our 4th Class (200-hour) Lab typically runs 5 weeks in length. These courses are built to suit a diverse learner population, ranging from students upgrading foreign credentials to those changing careers mid-life. Our learners are mature, focused, and want to be challenged.
