Preparing for the class at least two weeks ahead of time will ensure that your training goes smoothly. There are many logistics and materials that need to be organized in order to have a successful training.
Date – Pick a date for the training and enter into the western AIS website.
Location – Secure a location for training. Keep in mind you may need to book several weeks ahead to ensure you find a location. Things to keep in mind:
Note: If an agency or partner entity is hosting the training, provide them the Training Checklist for Host Sites. Review this document with the host agency, and document roles and responsibilities, to ensure everything is ready the day of the class.
Arrange for boats and decontamination units to be present on the date, time and location of the training.
Advertise the training and direct interested individuals to www.westernAIS.org to register. They will also complete the pre-training survey, liability form and get all their course materials on this website.
