Do I have to go to the location where I'm scheduled?

Students should go to the training center where they are registered due to capacity limitations. However, if a student shows up at the wrong location, we will try to accommodate him/her as time and space allow. If the scheduled course or CBT lab is full, or if there is not adequate time to complete the testing, then the student may be asked to go to another location or reschedule. This only applies to Alliance Safety Council locations.
