COVID-19 Response & Update
Code 3 Associates remains committed to keeping the safety and health of those involved in our trainings at the forefront of all we do. We continue to monitor the ever-changing impacts of COVID-19 as well as federal, state and local restrictions that guide if and how we can safely conduct classes.
We are hopeful that travel and gathering limitations will ease enough by July to hold classes with precautionary measures in place. In addition to our previously scheduled classes, we have added three additional NACHO classes to our schedule, locations and dates have been added below. Please stay tuned to our websites and social media for more information; we will post updates as we know more. Thank you for your understanding and continued interest in our training.
