I registered for a particular session and I would like to know why I was denied or added to the waitlist?
There are often more registrants that we are able to accommodate and the DBHDD reserves the right to utilize various factors in selecting participants. In addition, it is important that the registrant meets the target audience when registering for training. DBHDD also reserves the right to cancel training sessions due to inclement weather and/or low attendance.
What happens in the event that a training session is cancelled due to inclement weather or low attendance?
Participants will be notified via email and phone based on the information collected during registration. Please be sure to check your spam or junk folders when checking for our email.
I've registered online and I would like to know when I will receive notification on whether or not I have been approved to attend a training session.
Notification that you have been approved to attend will typically be sent two weeks prior to the date of the session for which you registered. This notification will be sent via email from the Office of Learning and Organizational Development staff. Exceptions to this timeframe may occasionally occur, depending on when the training was announced.
What do I do if I have not received an email indicating whether or not you are approved to attend a training session?
Please send an email to DBHDD_Learning@dbhdd.ga.gov and enter Training Notification in the subject line.
