To sign up, go here:
If you have never signed up through HSEM before, just click on “first time users only” to get started.

Specific street addresses are listed in the HSEM TRT course description.  The room information for Eden Prairie will soon be added to the TRT.  I will likely also offer a “make-up” class some time later in 2012 for those who could not attend the February classes.

If you know of anyone else who should attend, would be interested, or should be invited, please let them know, and send me a note as well.
Remember that it is best to have somebody who can stand in front of a class and teach in an enjoyable manner, not to mention that they have a decent understanding of storms.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.  Thank you very much.
