The training serves to fulfill a major requirement for Board of Immigration Appeals recognition and accreditation. The training is co-sponsored by the Baptist General Association of Virginia and Poarch Law Firm.

The daily schedule is 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The cost of registration is $315.00. The fee includes the cost of the course curriculum, as well as lunch and snacks each day. Travel, lodging and meals (other than the daily lunches on site) are not included in the cost of registration.
