Special Concerns:
1.  In order for you to register for this course, we must receive from a School Director of Instructor Training a written confirmation that you will be teaching or evaluating for them in a Commission-approved General Instructor Training Course. This confirmation must be given in the form of a letter signed by a certified School Director. Along with this letter, you must submit a copy of your current instructor certification. Both items must be submitted electronically to the attention of Tony Losada.

2.  Students must have access to the Internet, an email account and access to either a fax machine or scanner. This course relies heavily on the use of streaming video – high-speed Internet access is highly recommended.
