We are holding courses in Honolulu, HI and will be running courses in Lake City FL and Guam very shortly (mid-2018). If you are interested in taking courses in Guam or Florida, now is the time to start the process. From the time you put your paperwork in with us it will take about 60 days before you can start the course.
For all the courses, you’ll keep the equipment. Our course catalog is the best place to view the list of equipment that is included with each course. There is a link at the bottom of the page to download the course catalog.
You’ll need to attend in person and be able to commit to a minimum of 22 hours per week.
You will need to attend at least 22 hours per week to receive a housing allowance. The rate for Hawaii is approximately $2700 per month (as of Jan 2018).
This will break down each certification that you will do for the different courses along with other details.
We will go from there!
