CPS TRAINING APPLICATION FEE

A $20 online application fee is required for each applicant to each CPS training they apply for. This fee is non-refundable, non-transferable, cannot be waived or scholarshipped, and must be paid online at the time of application submission. The administrative costs for processing applications begins upon submission of the application, at which time payment is required. Please be certain before submitting your application that it is ready to submit, and that you will be able to attend the training if you are selected to attend. Neither training acceptance nor the application fee can be transferred to a future training.

If you have questions about your eligibility, the strength of your application, or the application process, please email cpsproject@gmhcn.org prior to submitting your application.

CPS TRAINING FEE

The $125 Training Fee is due upon the Training Fee Due Date set for each training. Refunds for the $125 Training Fee are available up until the Training Fee Due Date. After the Training Fee Due Date, the Training Fee is non refundable. The Training Fee cannot be waived or scholarshipped. As a result of high demand for this training, people accepted into a training who do not pay the Training Fee by the Training Fee Due Date will lose their eligibility to participate in that training so that others may be invited to attend to ensure a full course for each training; however, they remain eligible to apply to participate in a future training.
