Candidate Training Requirements
All courses are now completed in Cohorts.
Depending on when a new membership application is approved, will determine which Cohort a Candidate will be a part of.
It is not permitted to take courses from different cohorts once you are assigned your cohort upon membership approval. Your space will be held for the courses within your assigned cohort. If you cannot attend or miss a course within your assigned cohort, you will be moved to the next cohort schedule which will delay your progress of obtaining the DAR designation. A change in cohorts will only be permitted once, then your membership will be under review.
Any online/zoom course will start at 10AM – 6:00PM EST.
