(Certified, Qualified, Ready to GO!)  

Many training opportunities exist this year at DTrain. We are excited to offer courses that will build the auxiliary and provide hard to get courses in a compact format. However, it is very important to the success of these endeavors to be able to obtain the numbers of participants for all the courses. Also important is that you are aware of the prerequisites for each of the courses. Below you will find a list of the courses to be presented along with the necessary prerequisites required. These will be checked and no individual will be allowed to take the courses without meeting those requirements. Take the time to look over these before you indicate which ones you plan on taking.

We need you to click the ENROLL link once you have decided which courses you will take, this will give us the tracking information we are looking to retrieve.
