PROCEED TO THE NGCRC OPERATIONS CENTER (GARFIELD PARK) TO SUBMIT YOUR EVALUATION FORM TO THE NGCRC STAFF.

PICK UP YOUR CERTIFICATES IN GARFIELD PARK. NOTE: HAVE YOUR EVALUATION FORM READY TO BE EXAMINED TO SEE IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE MINUMUM HOURS REQUIRED (24 overall, at least 4 of which are in your Training Track).

 

After 6:00pm: NGCRC staff have gone. Your Evaluation Form is still important. Can you please mail your Evaluation Form to the NGCRC?

 

WE WISH YOU SAFE TRAVEL ON YOUR RETURN HOME. WE HOPE WE SEE YOU NEXT YEAR.
