REGISTRATION AT THE HEAD OFFICE WILL BE IN THE FOLLOWING STAGES

 

 

ATC’s are required to purchase Student Kits (a minimum set of 20) which is available at Head Office at a rate prescribed by the Head Office. They can purchase more in denominations of 10 ex. 20, 30, 40, 50 and so on and keep it in stock in ATC. If an ATC purchases 20 Kits, Head Office issues 20
