Enrollment Information
NP&RC operates on a year-round schedule. Classes in all courses can be arranged for any month of the year. All classes begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 4:30 p.m. each day. One hour is allowed for lunch.

Training dates can be selected and confirmed by companies who can send the minimum number of students for any class listed. Companies desiring to train less than the listed minimum number will be scheduled whenever additional registrations are received and confirmed. Any class may be postponed on relatively short notice if minimum requirements are not met. Anyone holding reservations in courses postponed or canceled will be notified by telephone as far in advance as possible. In the event classes are firmly scheduled and a company cancels less than one week in advance, a charge of at least one-half the tuition fee for each student may apply.

"Having been at the Sapulpa Daily Herald for 25 years, I have only been Production Manager for 2 1/2 years. During this time period, Frank and Steve Bourlon have been a great help to me...

"If it weren't for Frank and Steve, I don't know how I would have made it. They are always respectful and never condescending to the fact that I am a woman in a position usually held by a man. They are very prompt returning calls at their earliest convenience.

"The Sapulpa Herald has... other employees they wish to send to Oklahoma City for Frank and Steve to train. We are very impressed with their abilities and knowledge.

"I have recommended them to several other companies. Their experience, knowledge, expertise, and patience to train others the proper techniques is a valuable asset in the newspaper industry."

"The single width offset press course was excellent. Steve was very thorough in his presentation. I feel like I have a better idea on how a press operates and how to maintain it. Steve was very courteous and very clear on all explanations. He stopped whenever we had questions and answered them very clearly."

"...I would like to thank you for sending Frank Bourlon to Alpena for a review of our press operations. His technical expertise was very helpful. He showed our pressmen who have been running the press for 17 years many new things about their equipment and maintenance.

"More valuable still is Frank's ability to work with people at any level. During his stay in Alpena, he won the respect and cooperation of every person he came in contact with, from the publisher to the pressmen."
