The fee for the update training has to be payed in advance (you receive a bill in pdf-format). Board and lodging are not included in that price and has to be payed at the spot.

Even if you organise board and lodging by yourself it would be nice to have the diner with all at the end of the first day.

We can only accept members who registred by the pdf-form. The number of participants is limited. The validity sticker is only given to participants who presents a higher performance. The ones who are too far away of that have to visit a special exam to proof their performance again.
