All classes will be conducted within the host agency’s health and safety guidelines

Most NTC Instructor Course certifications do not have a specific time limit. Students are encouraged to maintain their skills and knowledge once they complete a specific instructor course. It is N.T.C.’s policy that past students in good standing and depending upon availability are allowed to attend future NTC instructor courses in the same discipline at no additional tuition cost within 5 years from the original course date.
