On Tuesday, January 29, 2019, the Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Mental Health sent out a notice of Registration Now Open for CRSS Fundamentals Training with the attached registration materials for each training site. We later discovered an error in the email that accompanied the documents, specific to the training that is scheduled in Chicago. The purpose of this message is to clarify the correct date for the training.

The correct date for Chicago is Monday, March 25. This is the date listed on the registration form. All other information remains the same. We apologize for any confusion.

For ease of reference, we are including all the original information about all three dates and sites below, with the Chicago information corrected:
