The cost of the class is $35.00 with an additional $12.00 for the book. If you have a book that is up to the correct standards you can use it. The class must be paid for with cash EXACT CHANGE  or a check made out to “The City of North Canton”. We don’t keep change in the office and the city does not take credit cards for this. We appreciate if you pay for class at least a week ahead of time-this secures your spot in the class.
We usually limit our classes to nine students –but there are occasions at busy times of the year or when we have additional instructors that we will increase the size to fifteen students.
