Our Response to Covid-19


At Glendo LLC the well-being of our team, customers, and students is our top priority and we continue to monitor the situation as it pertains to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

GRSTC Classes

With the safety of our students, instructors, and staff in mind, we have decided to postpone May and some of June’s classes at the GRS Training Center. The date of each class has been reassigned in coordination with the instructor’s schedule and open classroom availability. In the instance that the new date does not work for your schedule we are willing to transfer your deposit or issue a full refund. For those students with financial hardships due to the current economic situation, we are also willing to issue a full refund. Lastly, students that have had to cancel in 2020 due to COVID-19 will be given first-come, first-serve status for classes in 2021. We continue to place the value of our relationships and the well-being of our customers as our top priority. Your GRS sales representative will be in contact with you directly to discuss or confirm attendance on the postponed dates. If you have any questions, please call 800-835-3519. We hope everyone remains safe and we look forward to sharing the new GRS Training Center with you in 2020!
