Hosting Guidelines

  • The host agency must guarantee a minimum of 25 students to attend the class. The 25 students do not have to be from the host agency. The host must also provide a registrar. (Registrar responsibilities below). The host agency will be responsible for assisting with marketing the class. An update on the number of attendees and what agency
    they are affiliated with will be provided by CPOA.
  • Requirements for host site – The host site must provide a classroom or training space that can accommodate a minimum of 30 students comfortably. Most courses require the room to be set in classroom format. Additionally, the site must be able to provide all audio visual equipment needed for the course. The requirements for table setup and audio visual for the class you are hosting will be communicated to you prior to scheduling and again in the confirmation email.
  • In return – CPOA will give a complimentary seat to an individual from your agency to attend. For every 25 students registered for the class, your agency will receive 1 complimentary seat. We call this the 1 to 25 rule.
  • Registrar responsibilities – A registrar is required to check in all registrants. CPOA will communicate with the host agency prior and notify the agency if there are spaces available for onsite registration. If students show up and they are not included on the roster, the registrar will have the individual fill out an onsite registration form. In addition to registration
    responsibilities, the registrar will need to ensure that the instructor has the evaluations forms to hand out to the students. At the end of the class the registrar will collect the evaluations, as well as the extra materials and registration paperwork, and ship it to the CPOA office after emailing a copy of the completed rosters to
