Registration for the Interest List

To be considered for the APS program, you must place yourself on the interest list in the LRN. Seats in upcoming APS programs are offered based on the date you placed yourself on the interest list. The maximum capacity in the program is 35. We will begin offering seats to folks on the interest list at least 3 months before the start of the next program offering. We will send emails in date order to those on the list that include the schedule. You will have several days to reply to the email so that you can check with your supervisor and confirm your availability for the sessions on the schedule. Once you confirm that you are available, you will be registered for the program in the LRN.
