Here at Rocket Science Training School we believe in doing things a little different. Studies have shown that humans perform better when they have background knowledge prior to performing a task. To set both ourselves and companions up for success, each program will start with a session just for the trainers. Our group classes are shorter than most with the goal of providing the tools,knowledge and skills to handle any situation. 

Once you sucessfully complete a Rocket Science Program, you may never need another session again!
