PROGRAM CONCEPT

This program has been developed for use by any Rocky Mountain Division (RMD) member, in good standing, for reimbursement of training costs paid for by the member from his/her own funds. Reimbursement will be made for any training in one or more of the identification fields recognized by the International Association for Identification (IAI). The maximum reimbursement will be $300.

This program will be administered by a Training Reimbursement Committee appointed by the President for the term of his/her office.

Upon request each applicant will be supplied with a packet of information and forms necessary to facilitate the reimbursement and show proof of completion of the training. The applicant must register and pay for the training class themselves, and complete the training, before any reimbursement will be made.

Applications are accepted at any time on a first come first serve basis. They should be mailed to the RMD-IAI Secretary. The applications will then be reviewed by a special committee, appointed by the current President, to determine all the eligibility requirements have been met. Submission of an application is no guarantee that a reimbursement will be made.

Applicants will be notified if they are not approved due to lack of available funds, class content, or because the member is not in good standing.

Only members in good standing of the RMD-IAI are eligible. A member in good standing is one who is current with his/her dues.

REIMBURSEMENT PERIOD

The reimbursement period runs from January 1 until December 31 of each year or until the reimbursement money for the current period is exhausted.

REIMBURSEMENT LIMITS

Reimbursement will be awarded on the basis of the cost of the training fees, but cannot exceed $300. That is, the reimbursement will be equal to the costs of the training or $300 maximum. Applicants may be awarded only one reimbursement per year.

TRAINING FEES MUST BE PAID FOR BY THE RMD-APPLICANT MEMBER

Reimbursement will be considered only where the member has paid for the class training fees out of his/her own personal funds. Reimbursement cannot be made for training that was paid for by the member's agency or other sponsor. Reimbursement may be applicable for the registration, lodging, meals or travel.

ACCEPTABLE TRAINING CLASSES

Any training will be considered acceptable that pertains to one or more of the identification disciplines established by the IAI.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

Read and follow all instructions.

Along with the reimbursement request, as proof of attendance, a copy of the member's class certificate, or a statement signed by the class instructor verifying attendance, and the individual member's payment receipt must be submitted to the Reimbursement Committee. These documents must be received within thirty (30) working days of the end of the training class.

Reimbursement will be considered only when the member has paid for the class training fees out of his/her own personal funds. Reimbursement cannot be made for training that was paid for by the member's agency or other sponsor. Reimbursement may be given for registration, lodging, meals or travel expenses.
