The final SIAR certification/recertification class has been set up for this coming Saturday, March 29th, at the Takoma Park Municipal Building from 8:30am - 4:00pm.  If you need to be recertified (that means you are holding a 2002 badge) or if you need a new certification, this will be your final opportunity.  If you hold a 2003 badge, you are good to go for this season.

If you are planning to attend, please email Joe Rieck at to register for the class.  Joe will bring extra materials if you decide at the last minute to attend and cannot email him.
