When do I need to be there?

Class sessions run 9am-5pm on the day or days of your class (with an hour or so break for lunch at mid-day), so arriving promptly ensures the maximum time spent with our instructors.

We recommend flying in the day before, as Seattle traffic can cause unexpected delays.
