Don’t see your question here? Email us at email@nullwflo.org or call at +1 703 373 4300.

When do classes start and end? Classes begin on Sunday at 9:00 a.m. EST and end on Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. EST. Registration opens on Saturday at 4:00-5:30 p.m. EST.

Is there a registration deadline? There is no registration deadline, however attendance is capped at 370 students, so register early! Also, please note that there is no guarantee that you will be able to reserve a room at the Georgia Tech Hotel. We have a limited number of rooms so late registrants run the risk of having to stay offsite, which can be inconvenient. There are a number of hotels nearby. Please call our offices at +1 703 373 4300 for details.

Is there a group discount? Companies registering 12 or more participants will receive 5% off the entire registration.  Companies registering 25 or more will receive 10% off.  Contact headquarters to obtain your discount code.

How do I make a hotel reservation? Reserve your room directly with Georgia Tech by downloading and completing the reservation form, and then sending directly to the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center. Visit the Hotel Reservation page for more information.

What about meals? Meals for all participants registered as Regular Students will be provided at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in the Main Dining Room, beginning with Saturday dinner. Dinner is available from 5:00–10:00 pm, breakfast is available from 6:30-10:00 am, and lunch is available from 11:30 am–2:00 pm. Lunch and all day snacks are provided for Day Students.

Is there an attendance policy? Students are required to attend all of their assigned classes at the WFLO Institute. We will be tracking your attendance by collecting your course evaluation form at the end of each class. Please turn in your evaluation to your instructor at the end of each class. Students must not exceed more than three absences during their three year program. Students who exceed three absences, will not graduate from the WFLO Institute.

How do I talk to my supervisor about attending? Proving the value of training to your employer can often be an obstacle to continuing your education. Employers must weigh the value of training against budget constraints and schedules. As an employee seeking training, you will need to prove to your employer that your request will provide in a return on investment, resulting in increased productivity, safety, or operational efficiency.

When making a request, be sure to include detailed information about the WFLO Institute, costs, and the benefits of your attendance. Below are some helpful resources for employees seeking to attend the WFLO Institute. For more information on the ROI of the WFLO Institute, please contact WFLO at +1 703 373 4300 or email@nullwflo.org.
