Register CLC - usnistgov/carpentries-development Wiki

Note: Historically registration was setup using Commerce Learning Center, but it's probably too much bureaucracy and too little utility.

Go to the ServiceNow portal, click the Human Resources under Services button, click the Add NIST training to CLC link and complete the form and submit. If needed, you can attach documents via the paper clip at the top right. Help is available from Carolyn Holmes or Gabrielle Sun.

Provide the following information, editing to suit your workshop (NOTE, alternate registration system may be considered for future workshops):
