This is a Pre Training that qualifies the student to go on to the Foundation Course which is scheduled for this summer. The Pre Training is the first of four parts that need to be completed to become a full trainer in this work. This course is amended because it is taught in conjunction with the GYROKINESIS® course at Cabrillo College. This Pre Training is only for those students also taking the course at Cabrillo at this time.
