Requesting utilities provide the classroom facility and set up of tables and chairs to accommodate expected attendance.  Training dates are scheduled based on trainer availability so utilities are encouraged to have more than one date for us to consider.  All training courses will be developed to meet IDEM's requirements for continuing education contact hours and AIRW will submit all necessary information to IDEM to obtain approval for the sessions.  Upon completion of the class AIRW will submit appropriate documentation to IDEM for the reporting of attendees and credits earned and will maintain records of the training for the period required by IDEM.


If a utility chooses, surrounding systems may be invited to join the training and if mutually agreed upon, cost sharing options may be considered.
