The class will meet at the Nebraska Safety Center Driving Range on west Railroad Street. Pre-registration is required and can be done by contacting the Nebraska Safety Center at (308) 865- 256. Enrollment is limited to 14 persons. Cost of the course is $95.00, which must be paid in advance to secure a spot in the course. If, by the day of the class, the $95.00 has not been paid, the spot may be forfeited. In addition, there is a no-show fee of $50.00 for those who fail to call at least 24-hours in advance to cancel registration.
