Frequently Asked Questions

Is the TOTAL Lab open entry/exit approach for me?

Consider the following questions:

  • Are you a self starter?
  • Are you committed to attaining goals?
  • Are you able to read well and work independently?
  • Do you prefer a flexible work schedule?
  • Do you prefer to learn at your own pace?
  • Do you like to establish personal deadlines (as opposed to an instructor's deadlines?)
  • Do you have reasonable good problem-solving skills?
  • Can you accurately follow step-by-step directions?

If you answered yes to these questions, you are well-suited for TOTAL Lab open-entry/exit classes.
