QuickStart Traininig

All, We have two-day QuikStart classes scheduled for March 8-9, 2016 and March 10-11, 2016. The classes still have plenty of seats available, but are at risk of losing the second two-day class. There are only 5 registered for March 10-11, 2016 so far, and only 11 for March 8-9, 2016. If we can’t get more pre-registered, there is a chance they will be merged into just one two-day class on the 8th & 9th. If anyone is interested in attending the April - RND Concepts, Tactics and Integration Course, they must attend the QuikStart pre-requisite class first. Go to www.prnd.us to register for the QuikStart and use the following link to register for the April RCTIC class, RCTIC Regards, Richard F. H
