We send out confirmation emails as soon as we register students into a course (as well as a reminder one week from the start of the course). At this time, we are handling an excessive amount of requests. All course requests are registered chronologically based on fax or email time stamp (first come, first serve). If you have not gotten an email confirmation, please wait one week before inquiring if you have been accepted into a course.
Regarding FF1 applications:
You do NOT need to make an appointment to drop it off; you just need to call before you come to verify someone is in the building. When you get here, if the doors are locked, please call the office and we will let you in. Sorry for the confusion. It's just that we need to check them for completion and accuracy before we accept them. Thanks
