Dear Students – Extension Granted: Due to continued COVID-19 concerns, we are currently allowing all students to document online classes and training towards apprenticeship hours for a limited time. Through August 31, 2021, 40% of all required apprenticeship hours can be completed online. We still strongly believe that practicing in a studio environment is paramount for certification. Therefore, students are still expected to mentor with certified teachers for a portion of the hours. Please clearly document all hours, classes, instructors, and resources or entities for verification.
