I understand that this training program requires my respect for instructors as my supervisors, students as my co-workers, and that I am expected to show up every day and on-time (including after lunch and breaks). Failure to do so may result with my dismissal from this training program.

I also understand that due to current safety and health concerns that I will be required to wear a mask at all times when inside the building (including classroom) and maintain social distancing (6 feet) with others as much as possible.
