The Smoke-Free Arizona Act (http://www.azdhs.gov/preparedness/epidemiology-disease-control/smoke-free-arizona/index.php) prohibits anyone, including employees, vendors, and customers from smoking inside the premises and within 20 feet of all entrances to the premises. The Melting Point is, therefore, a non-smoking facility and does not have any place on the premises where people can legally smoke.
Please be on time. The class will begin promptly at 10 am each day. If a student is late, the instructor is not required to go back and review the information already covered so the student can catch up.
