New Year, New Training Center
Classes are back in full swing, and we've spent the winter recess finishing out the Training Center. We did a lot of sweeping, mopping, painting, building, decluttering, work, work, work, and now, it's lookin' pretty good if we do say so ourselves.
Please help us keep it tidy in 2017 by doing the following:
We also got real, usable wifi! The username and password will be posted in classrooms and the front lobby area. This will make taking end of term surveys SO much easier! Can't wait to see 100% of students fill them out (what? shameless plug!)
The only thing left to finish out the space is getting carpets installed in the new classrooms. We are working on it. If you'd like to speed up the process and help by purchasing one of the two remaining classrooms, you can do so by clicking here (what?? more shameless plugs?? what's going on!)
Office Hours are posted for the month of January. Click here to sign up for a spot to ask questions, or just talk with full-time DCH staff.
