Class #1Orientation will be held on October 7, 2020, classes will begin October 14, 2020.  *On Monday, 9/28/20, SSPI will make a decision whether to go forward with Orientation on 10/7.  In spite of unusually strong interest in our next Basic Reserve Intermittent Training Course, it has not translated into sufficient applications to allow us to run the class.  At end of business on Monday, 9/28 we will post on this site our decision.* 

If you have interest in this class, please forward an application to us as soon as possible.  However, please do not apply unless you are serious and committed to attending.
