It is given only to the approved clock hour provider for distribution and is not available via our website. The approved clock hour provider may remove the SPI logo and place their own logo on the top of the form. Providers are also able to add additional sections/requests for information to the form. However, changes in the overall look of the form should not be made to the three sections of the form so that it may be recognized by participants and employers.
