Registration

Attending Wichita HOT

Thank you for your interest in Wichita HOT! We offer two types of tickets to this event:

  • Lecture ONLY Tickets - If you only want to attend the lectures on Saturday.
  • Hands-On-Training Tickets - Includes both lectures on Saturday & a Sunday HOT class.

If you are planning on attending hands-on-training, we strongly recommend hydrating ahead of time and showing up well rested. Many of the classes will include live fire exercises and scenarios which are physically strenuous. All participants in hands-on-training must submit a Signed Live Release Form during check-in. Details about specific classes can be found in their descriptions including PPE requirements and class locations.

 

Individual Student Registration

Registration for Wichita HOT 2018 starts April 7th at 1200hrs. Online registration for all Hands-On-Training classes will close on September 23rd. You can register for Breakout Lectures in-person the morning of the 22nd unless sold out.

If the class you want is full, please complete this Waiting List Request. You may submit a request even if you already have another ticket purchased. You may not hold a spot for anyone other than yourself. We will offer vacated spots based on the order in which the requests were received. If we are unable to reach you by phone or email once a spot is free, we will move on the the next person.
