ISBA UPDATE

Spring 2021 Covid Update: ISBA is committed to doing our part with respect to the current restrictions and uncertainty around the Covid pandemic. The Spring 2021 session has been cancelled but registrations are being accepted for Fall 2021 and for 2022.

If restrictions open up, ISBA may be able to offer a TF Post and Beam course in late Spring 2021.

We thank all students for their patience and understanding with this decision to keep our community and students safe.
