Scan With the Experts
We understand that you may want/need to practice your new skill set more than the regularly scheduled courses allow. You can add an extra day of scanning in addition to this course by calling AHEC and speaking to a faculty member about our Scan with the Experts option. Additionally, Scan with the Experts sessions can be set up without registering for a regularly scheduled course to enhance your already developed skills. Call AHEC at 1-800-239-1361 for more information.
