Training & Adjustment Services (TAS) offers furnished residential apartments as an option for students attending full-time classes. Students living outside the Salt Lake Valley area or with demonstrated need are eligible to stay in the apartments during training. Residential students are required to take a full-time class schedule. Classes are held Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm with a one hour lunch period between 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eligibility to stay in the Residential Apartments requires that students be able to meet the physical and mental responsibilities, along with the ability to learn how to use the equipment. Residential students must be free from encumbrances that may impede attendance and delay their progress in the training program.
