Dozens of these courses are taught each year; at least one date per state is typically offered. If you are interested in attending one of these NHP-sponsored sessions in your area, contact your state EMA for dates and availability.
Instructors are also available for hire if you have missed the NHP-sponsored training for your state and/or wish to host a HURREVAC training in your local office. Visit Sea Island Software at http://www.seaislandsoftware.biz for further information.
