Course Details:

Pre-class Homework:

This class will be held in the Sheriff’s Auditorium in the County Sheriff’s building at 55 W. Younger Ave. in San Jose. This is a large room with a capacity of 300 people. As we will have at most 30 people in the class, there will be plenty of room for social distancing. See the information below for the details about what you will need to bring.

What You Need To Bring:

  • Face mask: wearing a face mask will be required at all times.
  • Because we will be spread out in the room it will be difficult to see a screen, so we will only use class handouts. Attendees should bring their own copy of the course slides--either printed or on a tablet or PC.
  • Printed copies of all other course materials (see the course description page for all course materials - link above). The in-class exercises require you to write on the various forms.
  • Clipboard or other writing surface. There will not be tables, only chairs, in the room.
  • Water, as you desire. Other beverages and snacks are NOT ALLOWED in the Sheriff’s Auditorium.

Parking and Check-in:

  • Park in the lot across the street from the Sheriff’s Office. Parking permits are not needed on weekends. Do not park in the visitors’ lot beside the Sheriff’s Office building.
  • When you arrive at the Sheriff’s office, someone will be available to direct you to the auditorium.
  • Please do NOT bunch up at check-in. Stay 6 feet apart at all times.

NOTE:  Depending on the number of participants, class questions and interaction, be prepared for the class to run over the scheduled time by up to 15 minutes.

Class size is limited to the first 30 people who sign up. Sign-ups will be closed at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, January 26.  


Note: 90% or better class time attendance required for credit.
