Trainees will receive training materials through a combination of electronic files and printed copy. Prior to the first day of training all registered participants will receive a document describing in detail the principles of the NCAC Forensic Interviewing structure. Each trainee will receive a printed manual in outline format, making the need for note-taking minimal. Supporting documents and reference material will be made available online to all participants of this training.

Transportation

Flight arrangements should be scheduled so that the trainee arrives the day before training begins, since training begins at 9:00 a.m. on the first day. It is also recommended that departure flights be scheduled 6:30 p.m. or later the last day of training to allow adequate transportation time to the airport.

Important Note: Training classes are subject to cancellation in the event of insufficient registrations. Therefore, DO NOT make non-refundable travel arrangements until you receive both a “Preliminary Registration” e-mail AND a “Final Confirmation” e-mail from NCAC that the training will take place (approximately 4 to 6 weeks before the training).

Airport Shuttle Service: The host hotel provides a complimentary airport shuttle between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. A direct telephone line to the hotel is available at Huntsville International Airport in the baggage claim area. If your arrival or departure times are outside of the hotel shuttle hours, you can arrange for a shuttle through Executive Connection, Inc. (256-772-0186), or you can call for a taxi. Attendees are responsible for any expenses incurred in traveling between the airport to the hotel.

Shuttle Service to Training Center: The host hotel will provide transportation by van between the hotel and the training site at no cost to trainees. It is recommended that trainees take advantage of the hotel van transportation, because parking at the training site is limited.

  • The vans will depart from the Embassy Suites at 8:30 a.m. each morning. The training is scheduled to end by 4:30 p.m. each day.
  • At the end of training the hotel vans will leave the training site at 5:00 p.m. to take participants to the airport. Depending on your departure time, you may choose either to take a van to the airport or to take a van back to the hotel.
  • If your flight is scheduled to depart prior to 6:30 p.m., you will be responsible for making your own arrangements (taxicab, etc.) to the airport. (Please note that you are expected to remain for the entire training to earn your training certificate.)

Rental Car: Since the Embassy Suites has a full-service restaurant, and is near Huntsville’s downtown area, most attendees will find it unnecessary to rent a car. The hotel also provides complimentary shuttle service on an availability basis to transport guests within a 3-mile radius of the hotel.

Meals
  • One Breakfast voucher is provided for each room, free of charge, by the hotel for their full-service restaurant at the Embassy Suites.
  • Catered lunches will be provided on-site by the NCAC Tuesday through Thursday. Please contact us if you have any special dietary requests.
  • Mini Fridge and microwave available in snack kitchen at the NCAC Training Center for trainees who wish to bring lunch.
  • Manager’s reception available at the Embassy Suites each evening from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. with complimentary cocktails, non-alcoholic beverages and light snacks served.
  • Attendees will be responsible for evening meals.
