The course takes place at the Talon Range, 550 Commerce Blvd., Midway. Instruction is from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST, Sept. 19.

Students must complete the Internet course before coming to class and bring a copy of the final report from the online portion of the course. The final report form does not have to be notarized.
