The course is designed for personnel with a good foundation of experience with the Operating Procedure, especially with respect to independent operations. Although some diversity of experience can be accommodated, this course is not recommended for personnel without a good foundation of experience with the Operating Procedure.
This is a challenging interactive two day course in which participants work through case studies on the 1990 and 2007 CAPL Operating Procedures in small work groups for presentation to the larger group. The case studies address subtleties of the Operating Procedure in the context of issues that could easily arise on files, so that attendees improve their understanding of those topics. The course is also designed to build the capability of attendees to assess and resolve Operating Procedure issues more generally.
Registration Fee includes beverages and snacks.
