Act Now… Time Is Running Out!

Washington, DC – The Corps Network’s Waders in the Water live, online webinar training and certification is filling-up fast.
 
The new online course price of $199 per student has the maximum 100 slots in the class and space is going quickly. The six-hour class, Mon. November 3 and Tues. November 4, 10 am – 1 pm Eastern Time, has been well received by corps nationwide.
 
Many corps who are in-between students have elected to train one or two staff members to see if the class is a good fit for their Spring ’15 training budget and schedule. Some other corps have registered multiple crews in preparation for projects they are about to start. To register for one of the remaining slots, please call Luke Frazza at Trout Headwaters at 703-244-7460.
