The staff at ORWA has been working hard to schedule the classes that were cancelled due to COVID-19. All classes will require pre-registration and we will be following the CDC guidelines of social distancing and masks. Each class location may require more safety measures. Please refer to our Training Calendar below and check back often as classes are added frequently.
