Pre-Course Training Materials

In order to help pack as much training into as short a time as possible, participants are asked to read and watch some pre-course materials so that less time has to be spent covering them at the event. That way everyone can spend more time getting hands-on experience in the field instead of sitting in a classroom. Before they arrive, participants should familiarize themselves with the major topics covered in the training course and complete the pre-course quiz:
