To all Attending the Level II WIT Training at Lake Mead

 

Thank you for your interest in the upcoming training!

 

The Western Regional panel have emphasized the need for comprehensive and effective coordinated efforts for Inspection and Decontamination of Watercrafts. These procedures are based on the Uniform Minimum Protocols and Standards UMPS III.

 

WIT LII Training should accomplish your Learning objectives, but that means homework. Click on WIT II - Student Manual and download the file; Read Chapters 1-5 PRIOR to attending the training. Print and answer the Chapter Review questions in the curriculum, we will review these in class.  A passing grade on the final exam is a requirement.  Certificates of Completions will be awarded to those prepared and participating in the training exercises.

 

Supervisors, who signed their staff up, please provide prework information to them. The site training will include Power Points, and only review of Curriculum with ability to have “HANDS ON” Field Exercises. (No excuse for prework not completed)
