For those union members who have tuition assistance programs (Ford and GM as of Fall 2010), all workshops are tuition-assistance approved and there is no out-of-pocket cost to the participants. The usual format is to have class for two hours, once a week, for six weeks, for a total of twelve (12) contact hours per workshop. Participants must attend 5 of the 6 sessions to receive a certificate. Other meeting time configurations are possible to fit your needs.
