Hello all,A couple of people asked me if this ...

Hello all,

A couple of people asked me if this accessibility course 2-1/2 hour credits are good for 2011. Yes! they are, so the accessibility continued education hours that you take are accumulative. You need to have 5 hours of training in a two-year period.

I look forward to seeing you there!
