how the waiting list works

  • Every training has its own independent waiting list. Waiting lists are processed about 7-10 days prior to the date of the training.

  • Because each waiting list is independent of the others, the fact that the applicant was accepted for her/his second choice does not mean s/he is accepted for her/his first choice.

  • Example A:  An applicant on the waiting list has indicated a first choice of a training date in February and second choice of a training date in March. There is no space available in February but s/he remains on the waiting list for March, so there is still an opportunity to be placed in her/his second choice training.

  • Example B: An applicant on the waiting list has indicated a first choice of a training date in March and second choice of a training date in February. There is space available in February and s/he is confirmed for that training. S/he turns down that opportunity hoping to be placed in her/his first choice, which occurs a month later. There is no space when the waiting list for March is processed so s/he has missed the opportunity to attend the training.
