Due to increased documentation needed for grant-funded classes we need you to make sure you fill out all the information correctly.  Registration does not guarantee you a spot in the class. 

  • If you don’t put your Hourly Rate you will not be accepted into the class
  • If you do not enter your MOHS ID correctly you will not be accepted into the class. (See below)
  • We really need your Fringe Benefit rate.  This helps us show the local agencies ‘investment back into the grant-funded classes and the TaskForce.  In the future funding will require like-kind investment by locals.  This is one way you can show a like-kind investment without coming up with matching funds.  If you take advantage of any grant funding classes and want to continue getting grant-funded classes please include all rates on your registration. 

The importance of your MOHS ID.  This ID number allows us to marry up all paperwork we track for the TaskForces such as certifications, training records, deployment cost, specific agency reimbursements, and many other documents.
