During this COVID pandemic, your safety and the safety of our staff, guests, and instructors is of great importance to us. The surest way for us to return to a normal training schedule is having a fully-vaccinated population.  If you are not vaccinated, please wear a mask for all CBLP classes.

The Level 1 exam is currently being offered online. Details will be shared with you after training is completed. We will return to in-person tests when we can safely do so.

By registering for this course, you have agreed to the following cancellation policy: Cancellations made at least THREE (3) WEEKS prior to event start dates may receive a refund for the cost of the class minus a $35 processing fee.
