The offices at GTA are staffed during regular business hours with staff on-site and other staff working remotely. Whether in the office or online, our staff is available to address any questions you may have regarding our programs or specific classes. Please send an email to or visit our staff page for staff contact information based on program responsibility. We are working diligently to bring training to you via online training platforms and are adding online classes on a monthly basis. This process does take time as we want to ensure students get the same quality training online as you would get in person, so with that in mind we are taking a measured and deliberate approach in the process to modify courses to an online format. Several courses have already been added and we have run several courses with great success. We do value our relationships with you and are working to make high quality training available to you as quickly as possible.
