STAR Event

Posted August 15, 2022

Brothers and Sisters,

I wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the importance of continued training through the DC16 STAR Program. The classes fill up quick so remember to check the schedule at the beginning of July and January for available classes. I always hear from members that there are no classes available but the reality is that they did not sign up when the schedules were available on the website. I do have some good news, walk-ins will now be allowed but will only receive 1 credit for walk in class per year. Please go to the DC16 STAR website for more details.

Also, if you have not heard yet, the new qualifier class for the STAR Event is the SCT class. Keep an eye on the schedule because these classes will fill up quick. There is currently 1 class in Sacramento scheduled for September 17, 2022. This class will be held at the Sacramento Holiday Inn Downtown from 7:00am to 3:30pm. This class is full but there are 2 others open. One will be held on October 15, 2022 at the Hilton Santa Clara and the other will be on November 19, 2022 at the Double Tree-By Hilton Berkeley Marina. There is still room for these so if you have not yet signed up, do so. For more information on availability and other training available through the STAR Program please visit the website.

For those that qualified for this year’s event, I look forward to seeing you all there. The event will be held on Saturday September 10, 2022 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton. Have fun and enjoy.
