How do I register for the on-site calibration training?

The driver of each truck to be calibrated must indicate on the registration form that he/she is bringing a truck for calibration. When all registrations have been received, each driver will be notified of his/her requested arrival time. This will maintain smooth staging and traffic flow on the morning of the workshop. Depending on how many trucks are registered, it may be necessary to continue calibrations after lunch.
