How do I register and pay for a course?
*It is highly recommended to contact the Training Dept. ahead of time to check for course availability. To attend a course you must be an FPA member.
Registering for Courses
Contact the Training Department to enroll. To ensure a spot in the class please complete the fee at the time of the registration. Otherwise, the Training Department will enter the registration as a “prospect student” and issue an invoice to that member. Spots are not reserved or guaranteed until the payment is received. Therefore, early registration payment is encouraged to ensure the spot and to confirm that the class has the required number of students to proceed. “Prospect students” can complete course payment by calling back to the Training Department, or once the invoice is issued you may mail in the payment, or complete it in person at the admin office or the equipment room.
As long as no additional members complete the registration fee, spaces will remain open until 48hrs (2 business days) before the start of the class. At that point, the class registrations closes for ALL in order to finalize the roster and necessary course materials. “Prospect students” that have not completed the fee by the registration deadline are not included in the final roster. We cannot accommodate late payments, late registrations and day of class walk-in students.
