The course takes place at the Hard Labor Creek Plantation, 1963 Hard Labor Road, Chipley. Instruction is from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 6.

Students must complete the Internet course before coming to class and bring a copy of the final report from the online portion of the course. The final report form does not have to be notarized.
