Registration is now OPEN for all persons interested in the training

The Board has decided to register 18 for this first course and the course will first be open only for members to register.

The first 18 people who register and pay the fee will be accepted. A waiting list of five others will be maintained in case someone cannot make it.

The Board has also decided that it will offer the course in Fredericton (maybe Moncton) and St. John's in the Fall -- provided that there is sufficient number to meet the expenses of offering the courses. The Board will also offer the course again in Halifax as soon as practical because it is clear that there is demand for this program.


This is a 5-day training event and completion of the course will satisfy the education requirement for Q Arb and C Arb designations -- the other components of the designations will need to be met appropriately in addition to the classroom component!
