FREE Training special with the 4-day course: Ask me for more details when you call today to schedule! 1.800.810.8849



Learn at your pace! Pick a date and time that works best for you!

By taking our one-on-one course you will learn the same techniques, but your class is guaranteed to only have 1-2 people in it.

We offer our Four-day, Two-day, & Advanced course with One-on-One instruction. You will learn the same techniques that are offered in the larger class setting; however, individual instruction allows you to work at your own pace. It also, provides you an opportunity to focus on areas specific to your needs.

PLEASE NOTE: The one-on-one courses do not have a specific schedule. This gives you flexibility to select the dates that work best for you. We just ask that you have at least three date choices when you call, in the event that we can't fulfill your first selection.
