Filling Out the Registration Form
First of all, do you have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your system? If not, you will have to download and install it before you can even see the form.
The Acrobat Reader is free; go to the Adobe web site and follow the instructions provided. The Reader is a fairly small file and will not take long to download. Once you have downloaded the file, double-click on it and follow the instructions on the screen to install it on your computer. You may have to restart your computer for the Reader to work properly.
Once you have installed the Acrobat Reader, click on the "Fall 2011 Registration Form" link on the right to load a registration form on your screen. After the page loads in Adobe Acrobat, you have a choice: you can print the form out to fill it in by hand, or you can type in your answers and print it using your web browser's Print command (usually on the File menu).
To type in the form while it's on your screen, follow these directions:
Click in a field that requires information; a blinking cursor ("|") will appear and you may begin typing.
To move to the next blank, press your TAB key (next to the "Q" on your keyboard) or click in the next blank with your mouse. Continue to move through the form until you have completed all the blanks that apply to you and your training choices.
Once completed, you may print the form with your local printer. THE FILLED OUT FORM CANNOT BE SAVED TO YOUR SYSTEM - YOU CAN ONLY PRINT THE FORM. If you exit the reader for any reason, your data will be lost. It is recommended that you minimize the form, and stay online if you need to do research for certain information.
Remember, you do not have to fill the form out online - you can print the blank form, and then type the information with a manual typewriter or handwrite your information.
If you want to save the form to your computer to print later, follow these instructions:
Microsoft Internet Explorer: Right-click on the link for the form you want (Fall 2011 Registration Form, for example) and select "Save Target As..." A Save As...dialog box will appear, with the file name (such as "exampleform.pdf") already filled in at the bottom. Click the Save button after you have chosen where you want it to go on your computer.
FireFox users: Right-click on the link for the form you want (Fall 2011 Registration Form, for example) and select "Save Link As..."

Click the Save button after you have chosen where you want it to go on your computer.
Or, you can click on the link for the form you want (Fall 2011 Registration Form, for example) to load the form in Acrobat Reader. After it loads, click on the Save a Copy button on the left end of the toolbar. Save the file (form.pdf) to the location you want on your computer.
