By submitting this form, I hereby acknowledge that I have read, understand and can achieve the aforementioned technical requirements. Furthermore, I agree to the participant policy for on-line continuing education courses.

I further indemnify and hold harmless the Des Moines Electrical Training Trust for any wrongdoing on my part, or that of another participant, while attending a virtual class.
