The class I want is full. Can I be put on a standby list?

No. You will need to sign up for a class that is not full. If none remain within your 90 day window, you will need to contact the Health Dept. at (502)574-6650.

I need to Cancel or Reschedule

You must cancel or reschedule 24 hours prior to your scheduled class time. Cancelling forfeits rescheduling so if you just want to be in a future class, click the Signup/Reschedule/Confirm section and select another class date. If you are beyond your 90 day window or it is less than 24 hours prior to your original class date, you will need to contact the health dept and either repay the fees or provide documentation of your excused absense.
