What are the training hours, and is there night or weekend training?


  1. Home

For basic and advanced training, classes typically begin at 7:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. each weekday, however, practical exercises are often scheduled at night to enhance the training experience. The normal training week is Monday through Friday, but training may be scheduled on weekends, if necessary.  When you check in at the Visitor Center, you will be provided a class schedule for your reference. Keep in mind that schedules can change, dependent on circumstances such as weather, availability of facilities, etc.
