Which choice is right for you? It depends on your physical location. If you are outside of the area of any of the classrooms, your choice is easy; you will log on. If you are in the vicinity of Rogers, Hot Springs, or Harrison, you will want to attend at the appropriate classroom setting if convenient; most participants learn best when learning with others, and/or the discipline of the classroom setting is likely to keep you on track and on target. However you choose to participate, your faculty is committed to your success.
