Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Do you have a contract with them, and if so what does it say about taking the classes? Also, what exactly do you mean by "force"? Do you mean can they force you to take the classes as a condition or representing you? Sue you if you don't take them? What exactly?

I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
