COVID-19 Updates

We at LifeTek understand the concerns surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19.  We also understand the importance of staying current on your certificates to continue working.  To serve your training needs, all LifeTek classes will continue to run as scheduled.  Updates and cancellations will be notified via email, text messages and can be found on individual registration pages for contract clients.  Face Masks and screenings are REQUIRED to attend in person training.  You will be turned away if you have a fever higher then 100.4, are not wearing a mask, or do not comply. 

During this time we will offer students who feel uncomfortable attending class the option to reschedule free of charge.  Most courses offer a hybrid option.  This two part alternative would consist of video based learning completed online from any location with internet and a hands on skills check with an instructor and a small group of participants.  Additional fees may apply.  Please reach out to our office at 360-416-8239 with any questions or to reschedule.
