Registration Applications

  • Important Note: Unfortunately, most CCI courses have waiting lists, so a valid application does not necessarily mean that you will be attending the next available class. Eligible students are encouraged to submit applications well in advance of training requirements. Normally applicant's supervisors are contacted telephonically about 8 weeks before a scheduled class begins to determine whether the student can attend. Official Student Acceptance Letters are mailed out shortly thereafter. Unless you have received an acceptance letter, you were not selected to attend.
