In-Office Training

It is a requirement of the course to have one weekly in-office class but due to COVID-19 if students do not feel safe to come into the office that is ok. We do take the utmost care in ensuring our offices are a safe environment during this time for our staff, students and clients. So, if you choose not to attend the office we will run some training before tax season begins.
