The class initially meets in the historic Comal County Courthouse, with other sessions taking place at other county facilities like the County Jail, Extension Office and Elections Center.

Classes are scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday March 10 through May 12. Graduates will be recognized by Comal County Commissioners Court on May 14.
