Is there a minimum age requirement to participate?
While the participation of minors in the training course is not discouraged, it is recommended that those under the age of 18 be accompanied by a parent or guardian while attending the class. Parents should use their discretion when allowing their child / teen to participate, as some of the course topics may be sensitive to members of younger audiences (i.e. the discussion of physical injuries or other minor medical conditions). Additionally, please be aware that courses are conducted in a classroom setting, and appropriate classroom etiquette will be emphasized.
