We have moved!
Our new address is: 4701 Market St. Suite D, Fredericksburg VA 22408.
We are on the second floor of the Goodwill building near the I-95 Massaponax Exit (Exit 126). From I-95 take Rt. 1 north then make the first right at the light onto Market St. You'll see the Goodwill building ahead of you. Take the stairs or elevator to the second floor and turn to your left. Our new location has training rooms that we share with the other tenants so we will be holding regular training classes at this location.
