Internet Requirements:

All sessions will be held on Zoom. If you have internet instability and cannot participate in a portion of the course, there will be a video recording available for you to review. If a participant's video is not stable throughout more than 1 hour of any session, course registration may be jeopardized. Please do your best to ensure that you have proper internet connectivity before we begin.
