Santa Barbara is a place with unlimited outdoor activity possibilities. Some of the most beautiful beaches in California only a few minutes drive from our training facilities. You can also enjoy many mountain trails with stunning vistas - in some places the mountain peaks and ocean waves are only two miles apart. All of this is just a short drive from a buzzing downtown area with world class restaurants. 


You can plan on arriving the day before your training starts and the day after your training ends. You are responsible for your own transportation (including transportation from the airport to the training house). Feel free to arrive earlier or stay later in Santa Barbara, but unfortunately we cannot provide food or housing outside of the training period. 

The best way to travel from Los Angeles International Airport is with the Santa Barbara Airbus.
