  1. How do I watch archived classes for this years training? I am not able to do all the live classes? Please give me a link to view

    • Tammy – We will post presentations right after they are presented live. I did a little work to clean up this first presentation and have now posted it on Brainshark and YouTube. You can view the presentations on whichever platform works best for you. Thanks for staying up on the details.
