  • Have the appropriate number of trainees: optimal 8–12, minimum 6.
  • Have the appropriate number of computers in a laboratory for trainees.
  • Set up the facility and coordinate among the trainees in your region.

Note: The computer lab must be reserved for two days. The day of the actual training and the day before the training so that the CHRIS team can set up the lab with all the materials needed for the training. Hotel accommodations vary by center location.
