APPLICATION FORM

Note Regarding Using the Application Form: 

  • The Application Form is a fillable/writable PDF which is handled differently depending on which browser you are using. 
  • It is best to download/save the blank Application Form to your desktop/computer before completing and saving your entries because with certain browsers, it will not save unless you download it to your own computer first.  (In our experience, if using Mozilla Firefox, for example, you will need to click on the small down arrow at the top right of the form (the download arrow) in order to save it to your computer.)
  • The Form itself can be slow to open (be patient) and you must doubleclick in the blanks to begin keying.
  • Please contact HTRS at [email protected] if you have any questions.
