Sessions will be held on June 7 and 8, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and on June 28 and 29, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Bowleys Quarters VFD is located at 900 Bowleys Quarters Road, Baltimore, Maryland 21220.

Seating is limited and advance registration is required. Call 410-800-8420 to register and for more information. The class is $35 per student.
