Online Educational Classes Now Available

 In order to meet the federal and state mandates for social distancing and limited gatherings, relative to the COVID-19 pandemic, all ‘in-person’ classes have been cancelled for an undetermined time.   Once federal and state travel restrictions have been lifted and approval for gatherings has been waived, the State of Tennessee will resume the requirement for ‘in-person’ class attendance, if health and safety can be maintained for all. 

Take this opportunity now, to complete your 2020 education online!
