When to Schedule Travel Arrivals and Departures

Participants may arrive to the VirPack offices as early as 8:30am. Classes start at 9am sharp. To avoid missing part of the class, we recommend that you arrive the day/evening before the first class.

Departures should be scheduled for after 6:30pm on the last training day. The airport security lines can be very long in the DC area and you need to give yourself enough time to get through them and to your gate. Taking a train in the evening will also require planning as getting to and from the stations in rush-hour traffic from Tysons Corner can be challenging. Booking a late departure and then traveling stand-by for an earlier time may be an option as well.

Traffic all around the capital area and Northern Virginia is pretty heavy at just about any time of the day. Please give yourself enough time to get to where you are going in case of traffic delays, construction, weather, etc.
