What do I need to know as a first time user?
To register to use the system you have to select 'My Applications' from the left hand menu.  Click the 'register' hyperlink and complete basic personal data.  Once you have registered you will then receive a confirmation e-mail containing your password.  Your password is case sensitive.  Please note your registration should be confirmed within 24 hours but please allows extra time close to weekends and UK bank holidays.  Thereafter you can login whenever you like in order to apply for events, track status of your applications and to complete event administration forms.
