IMPORTANT!

If you are registering for a Cary class beginning September 7th or October 3rd, we want you to know that at some point during your class you may be asked to meet in a different location for a few sessions. This is due to an expansion of our Cary classroom. Depending on the exact dates, you will either be asked to meet at our Southpoint location at 6905 Fayetteville Road Suite 204 Durham, N.C. 27713 or at our Raleigh location at 1000 St. Albans Drive, Suite 400 Raleigh, N.C. 27609. We are hoping that there will be no more than 2 or 3 class sessions that will have to be moved. You can find directions to these locations on our website at www.fmschool.com.

Your instructor will also announce this the on first day of class and keep you updated as the process moves forward. It is our intention that we keep our classroom disruption to a minimum. We sincerely appreciate you working with us as we work to bring you an improved classroom in Cary.
