To avoid excessive toggling between the instructor's desktop, your e-book, and your own lab computer, we highly recommend that you have two monitors running in extended mode for this training. In addition, you may want to view your e-book on a separate tablet or computer so that you don't have to toggle between screens.
The class will start at 9:00 a.m. each day and end by 5:00 p.m. CST.

We look forward to having you in class!

Connect to the Audio

We will utilize UberConference for the audio portion of the class. You should receive an email from your instructor prior to class. Below is a list of conference numbers by the instructor. If there any issues with the audio conference the instructor will utilize their Webex account as a backup and will notify the students of the dial-in phone number.
