An alternative is to complete less than 180 hours and choosing to attend only the scheduled trainings that each student needs to complete their education requirements. It is the student s decision whether to attend on a monthly basis for the 12-month period. If a student has a prior obligation or scheduling conflict, the student has the right to not attend that month and return the following month without consequence.
