Dates: Saturday and Sunday, January 19 and 20, 2019
Times: Check in: 0830 (8:30am), Classes start promptly at 0900 (9:00am) and will most likely go all the way to 1700 (5:00pm).
Cost: Registration for new students is $100 for Butte County residents, and $250 for out-of-county residents. The reason for the fee difference is that Butte County requires a mandatory background check for all students. That fee is $150. We have contracted Animal Control to partially pay for Butte County residents who enroll in the class, but outside personnel are not covered, hence the fee difference. Training fee gives volunteers free training for all usual NVADG Animal Emergency Shelter & Evacuation trainings in 2019. Payment is due at registration.
ALL ATTENDEES MUST REGISTER AND PAY IN ADVANCE. This training will be sold-out. If you are unable to attend after registration and payment, please consider it a donation as there are no refunds.
We're sorry we have to have these new rules, but we lose time and money when people make reservations but don't show up, or cancel late.
Location: To be determined depending upon how many students register.
Training Topics include:
