Attendees will be provided with the history and guiding factors for the creation of F-ROC. Additionally, this course will introduce the recipients of public assistance to F-ROC and provide details on updates and changes to submitting forms for Cat A (emergency work) and Cat B (permanent work). It will also cover best practices on how to manage pre-event activities, and the F-ROC scoring assessment process.
