Note: This is a rescheduled class.  This class was previously scheduled on May 4th.  Due to unforeseeable circumstances at the sponsor’s location (American Honda, Torrance), the class was cancelled.  The change in venue makes it necessary to increase the cost of admission from the original $5.00 to $30.00 for the entire day of expert training. South Bay Mobile User greatly appreciates the overwhelming response to this class.
