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.
*Both tickets include access to hospitality events on Saturday evening.

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.
