Approval Process: Registrants will be notified of approval status after registration deadline, approximately one month prior to training. 

Offering quality, professional training in a classroom environment is a key priority for our organization, and we feel that this format is the most conducive to effective learning. Our format allows for small groups, one-on-one coaching and ample Q&A. However, given the inherent size of classroom training, we have to carefully manage the registration process. Our goal is to ensure that participants have timely access to the training sessions they are in need of in order to do their important jobs effectively. In reviewing registrations, our process is to assess both the registrant CAC’s needs as well as the registrant’s completion of course prerequisites.
