Once on the waitlist you will be there anywhere from one to a few years depending on the churn of the membership. You will know that you came OFF the list a few different ways. The first is that you will receive an email that is first come first serve with an invite. This is sent to a batch of the oldest waitlist users. At this point you will pay your non-refundable initiation fee and the full first year of your membership. You then receive an invite to the mandatory on-site safety course. Once passed you will be given your gate card and code, member ID, badge, etc. You will also gain full member access to the website.
