If you are currently not working and need to get some certifications updated, it’s a good time to take advantage of the training while classes are available, so go to the DC16 STAR website at so you can pick your dates and classes that are available in your area. Some classes accept walk-in but please contact the STAR program to see if they are accepting the class you want to attend.
