All workshops are intended to be self-supporting. Therefore all workshops are scheduled with a pre-registration date and a minimum registration clause. If the minimum number of registrants have not replied by the pre-registration date, the workshop will not be conducted as scheduled.
The ARO course is approximately 4-5 hours. ARO/CRO courses take approximately 12-14 hours to cover the theory and some practical demonstrations. Depending upon the area and the availability of course conductors, workshops can be structured to run during a weekend or over three evenings.
