Travel and ACCOMODATIONS

If you're flying in for training, both Seattle-Tacoma (SeaTac) and Paine Field airports serve the area. Note that the light rail only goes to SeaTac. We recommend that you plan to arrive by the evening before training starts. We will wrap up by 4pm on the last day to accommodate same-day flights out. For 1:1 trainings, we will coordinate the training schedule with your flight schedule. For accommodation search purposes, Seattle trainings are in the Greenlake neighborhood in north Seattle.
