CERT HYBRID COURSE

This is a new hybrid course with most of the lecture material presented in an online interactive portal. This allows the participant to progress through the material at their own pace leading up to the bi-weekly hands-on skills classroom portion.

All hands-on classes are to be taught twice a year, once in the Spring and again in the Fall. Class times run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and are held at Millcreek City Hall. Please see the detailed schedule for specific locations for each day.
