COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

As COVID-19 continues to impact areas across the country, we are closely monitoring new developments. The health and safety of our customers and employees at Brandt is our top priority.

COVID Precautions:
  • We will restrict the size of our classes to avoid crowding and maintain physical distancing
  • Students have the option to enroll in a digital online course for the theory portion of the training
