Courses This Month






Update: May 27, 2020, 12:30pm 

It is hard to imagine that since March 2020 we have all placed our lives, the economy, and our country on hold due to the Coronavirus disease. Not only the U.S.A., but the entire world has been forever changed by this scourge. Going forward, we all play a role in minimizing transmission of this virus. As we attempt to reopen, we will adjust our operational procedures to ensure we incorporate best practices of the Centers for Disease Control, our state and local health officers, as well as our elected officials. Most importantly though, our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, coworkers, and loved ones whose lives, health, safety, and security have been so devastatingly impacted. 

Beginning on June 1, 2020, Governor Kay Ivey has released educational institutions in the State of Alabama to resume traditional face-to-face course offerings with several stipulations. At a minimum we must:

  1. Adhere to social distancing guidelines
  2. Routinely disinfect and sanitize frequently touched surfaces
  3. Wear face coverings, to the extent possible, when personal interaction is less than six feet

Additionally, at the beginning of each week, staff and students will submit a brief questionnaire to ensure no one has Coronavirus symptoms. At some training locations, we will ask that staff limit the number of students based on the physical dimensions of the classroom, and depending on the course we will ask that if students and staff have close personal contact they take safety precautions by wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment. We understand that these guidelines are cumbersome and intrusive, however because your safety, health, and well-being is of utmost importance, we are asking anyone who instructs, attends, or visits AFC courses to adhere to these guidelines. 

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Executive Director
