policies and procedures
Acceptance of Participants
ADEM reserves the right to select participants based upon, but not limited to, the following:
- Experience or training
- Nature of information being presented
- Class size limitations
A no walk-in policy is in effect for all classes. Only those who have followed the approved application process and received formal acceptance notification from ADEM or STARS will be admitted to the classes.
Students should attend all sessions of each course, seminar or workshop and be prepared to interact during course activities and exercises.
Credit for course completion and reimbursement (if applicable) will not be granted to students if more than 10% of the program is missed. You must notify the course manager if you expect to miss any class sessions.
Certificates of attendance will only be issued upon successful completion of the course.
If an individual is unable to attend a course for which he/she has been accepted, he/she must cancel a minimum of 72 hours in advance of the course by accessing our Event Registration Management Application (ERMA) at www.erma.az.gov and canceling their registration on-line. If cancellation occurs less than 72 hours prior to the course, the course fee (if applicable) will not be returned.
If you cannot cancel through ERMA, or have difficulty with the system, please contact us for assistance.
Students who do not cancel attendance prior to the start date, may be denied admission to future courses for a 12-month period.
In accordance with Division policy, smoking is not permitted in the classroom or any building. Smoking will only be permitted in those areas designated during each class. Breaks will be scheduled throughout the class.

Pagers/Cellular Phones/2-Way Radios
