Are there any plans for general classes?
Duane’s email address was incorrect in the email sent to me….email@example.com
Not yet but that could change once the Technician course is finished and if there is interest for a General class.
Thanks Michael! I caught the error right after I published the announcement but it was too late to fix the email. The correct email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
