Open Enrollment Programs

RBT's Open Enrollment Programs are open to the public, and we accept registrations on a rolling basis.  Decisions to run a course will be made based on enrollment numbers two weeks prior to the start date of the course.  If you have any questions on Open Enrollment Programs, please email Registrar@RBTeach.com or call Ashley Wallace at 978-893-0109.

In response to the COVID-19 limitations for in-person gatherings, our summer courses will be offered virtually and include a combination of live virtual meetings and offline assignments. Courses begun virtually will continue virtually until completion. Adjustments will be made as necessary for assignment completion to accommodate different access to students and classrooms.
