     Through the Focusing on the Needs of Today’s Hispanic Workforce project, the classes will be offered in English and in Spanish on Tuesday, April 10 and Monday, April 16. Participants will receive a certificate for each class.

The free training sessions are open to any private, public employer and the public. Both classes are taught at the Lifelong Learning Center, 8050 Paradise Road (I-215 and Windmill Lane) from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.

     The first class, Looking at Mistakes in Landscape & Knowing How to Solve Them on April 10, will cover planting, staking, pruning and growing palms. The first training session includes hands-on activities and opportunities to ask plenty of questions.
