Absentee Policy:

To get the most out of your Teacher Training Program, it is imperative that you attend 100% of the training.

If you miss a few hours of the program you can review the few hours missed with a fellow TT or schedule a private lesson with Marni.  If you miss 1-2 days: You may still complete the program with your class, provided that you schedule either a private session (or group session) with Marni (1 hour private session equals 2 hours missed TT) or you can take a comparable workshop with other teachers. Private Make-Up lessons will incur in an additional charge.
