Who can attend an LAT event?

The LAT program is available for accounts with unused training slots and will deliver the training in their area. These accounts will have the opportunity to send up to 3 participants per LAT event for each classroom training slot available.

For example, one classroom training slot will allow for 3 LAT courses of choice. Each course is one day in length.

  • Example A: 1 student can attend 3 LAT courses of their choice.
  • Example B: 3 students can attend 1 LAT course of their choice.
What happens to the remaining two LAT training slots if I only send one person to an LAT event?
