Course Format

We offer courses in a weekend format that consists of 2 or 3 weekend sessions for a given course spread out over a 2-month period.

Three-weekend classes are held from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on both Saturday and Sunday of each weekend session. 

Two-weekend classes meet from 5:00 until 9:00 p.m. on Friday evening and from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. 

In most cases, a student will complete all of the two or three weekend sessions of one course before starting the weekend sessions for the next course. There is typically a one-month break between each semester.
