There are a few easy steps you'll need to do to attend the online, live classes. You can hear and see the other members, ask the instructor questions. and enjoy a chance to socialize with your class mates.
First you must register and pay for your class through our webpage www.seesa.ca.
On the day of the class you will get an email inviting you to attend.
Follow these steps:
1. You must download the Zoom app. Below, you'll find URLs appropriate to your laptop, tablet or smart/iphone.
