The AP committee will be conducting a series of small-group clinics in 2019 to assist those members interested in pursuing AP certificates.

The first clinic will be led by Charlie Mason, MMR, Piedmont Division Achievement Program chair.  "An Overview of the Achievement Program" will emphasize the requirements for the various certificates, judging for merit awards and the scoring matrices, review of some good examples of paperwork, and some scratch-building and super-detailing examples (models and track work).
Registration is required as space is limited.  Contact Charlie Mason at candmjmason@att.net or  e-mail or 770-993-1589 if you are interested in attending.

The second and third clinics will focus on the Electrical certificate and the Chief Dispatcher certificate, respectively.  Dates for these two clinics have not yet been announced.  The Electrical clinic will focus on generating all the wiring diagrams required for the certificate.  The Chief Dispatcher clinic will focus on the paperwork required for the certificate -- especially generating an operating timetable and creating the operating diagram for the timetable.
