A few things to keep in mind as you consider this opportunity:
·         You must complete all classes and pass the final to receive your CERT certificate.  If you know that you will be unable to attend a class we would ask that you hold off registering until you can make all classes.  The only exception to this is if you have taken one of our skills classes in the last year, you may choose to not take it again.
·         You may only register for yourself
·         Registration is on a first come/first serve basis and space is limited.

To register please go to SNAP@seattle.gov , We will have a wait list for the class in case of last minute cancellations, but that list  WILL NOT be maintained after the class has started.  We will be offering CERT training again in the Spring of 2013.
