Gin Training Seminars

 
2021 Gin Training Seminar Schedule and Registration

The Gin Training Seminars were held by Zoom on April 6, 13, and 20.  4 hours for each session will be awarded for Continuing Education Credit, so if a Certified Ginner attends all three sessions, they will have fulfilled their 12-hour Continuing Education requirement.  These sessions will not count towards gin school course levels I, II, or III and are not intended to be a substitute for gin school coursework.  The Certified Ginner Exams will not be offered in 2021.
