As of September 1st, 2022

We are changing our policy for our programs with extensions of the 3, 6 and 12 month and other programs.  Everyone will have 2 extra weeks to complete the 3 month program, 4 extra weeks to complete the 6 month program and 6 extra weeks to complete the 12 month program. People often use the extensions when they go on vacation or when someone is under the weather. To activate any extension you must email us at and it has to be an absence for more than 7 consecutive days in order for it to count. This is a bonus we have offered for 25 years and will continue to have this benefit available.
