Classes are offered in Saratoga, Malta, Schenectady, and Troy, as well as our training room in Albany. If we offer the class, we’ll track it for you too. All the classes you take through GCAR are recorded in the ‘class history’ section of your membership file. Log in to the GCAR membership portal, click on class history, and you can see all the classes and credits you have taken.
