This seminar is intended for anyone who is seeking to learn about the 2015 Operating Procedure. All experience levels are welcome, but it should be noted that the course is premised on the assumption that attendees will have a good level of understanding about the 1990 CAPL Operating Procedure, as the focus of the seminar is on differences relative to the 1990. rather than the basics of the Operating Procedure.
This one day course is an overview of the 2015 CAPL Operating Procedure focused specifically on the changes between the 1990 document and the 2007/2015 document. It is meant to enable personnel to appreciate substantive differences between the 1990 and the 2007/2015 documents.
