Located in the historic Water Tower Building in the heart of John’s Landing just 10 minutes south of downtown, our location boasts easy access to I-5.

Parking at this location is provided courtesy of Cascade Training Center. Students must park in a white-lined permit-only parking stall within the south parking lot and obtain a parking permit from the parking meter to be placed in their vehicle. Directions to obtain a parking permit will be included in your initial confirmation email for any course taking place at this location; please contact us if you cannot locate these directions. Be sure to allow enough time to obtain a permit, place it in your car and get upstairs to the office for a prompt class start. Failure to obtain a parking permit, or parking in a yellow 2-hour visitor parking stall may result in a citation.
