We will take your completed registration as a confirmation that you have any necessary approval and/or funding to attend. Please complete this step ASAP and no later than Friday, April 28, 2017. If you need more time to arrange for approval and/or funding, call me at (510) 981-9487 so I know you are still interested. If you don’t register, and I haven’t heard from you on or before April 28, I will assume you are no longer interested, and I will offer your spot to another applicant.
If you know already that you are unable to attend this training, please reply ASAP to this message. We’d like to invite another applicant in your place if you can’t join us.
Applicants who have requested a waiver for the $100 registration fee: please see your email for a promo code. The code covers only one registration at a time, so if your agency is sending multiple people, please register and finalize them each separately; do not click "Save & Add Another Attendee" or your promo code will not work.
The Boot Camp will be based at the Hilton Knoxville Airport Hotel, 2001 Alcoa Highway, Alcoa, TN 37701. Boot Camp attendees are eligible for a contracted rate of $105/night if you book by May 21, 2017. Employees of the federal government may be eligible for a reduced rate; call the hotel via Sabrina Heath, Sales Manager, at (865) 970-4300 to inquire. Otherwise, make your reservations (by May 21!) at: http://www.hilton.com/en/hi/groups/personalized/K/KNXAHHF-ANIMAL-20170604/index.jhtml
Training will run from approximately 8am to 5pm each day, with a minimum of 1 hour for lunch. Lunch will not be provided as part of the program. The hotel has its own restaurant and a shopping area approximately 1-2 miles away has many food options. The hotel shuttle is available for rides within a five-mile radius of the airport. We will ensure that attendees without vehicles have rides to and from the training sites as needed.
If you have a disability for which you require accommodation, or if you have a service dog you plan to bring with you, please let me know so we can make appropriate arrangements.
