FHANA Offers Education Week

You remember the Education Weeks that have been offered by the KFPS in the past.  Now you can receive the same education by attending the FHANA Education Week which will be held Oct. 3-6, 2017 in Springfield, OH.  The instructor for the class will be KFPS judge Will Thijssen who also teaches the course in the Netherlands.  The course is open to 15 people and you can register for the class by contacting the FHANA office at 859-455-7430.  The cost of the class will be determined by how many people sign up to attend the course.  We are estimating between $500 and $750 per person.
