If an in-person event sells out due to limited capacity, the CPCA training team will maintain a waitlist to reallocate any spots that become available. We encourage you to submit a waitlist request for one member of your staff only as to expedite communication if a spot should open. All waitlist requests must be made in writing and sent to Once CPCA staff are notified of an opening, the first entry on the waitlist will be notified via email and will have until the end of the next business day to confirm by replying to the email. If confirmation is not received by the end of the next business day, the open spot will be given to the next entry on the waitlist. 

Note: If there are fewer than 5 business days before the event, the confirmation timeframe will change to the end of the same business day.
