How It Works

Click 'Enroll' on each of the programs you want to register in.
Click 'Checkout' to view your shopping cart and proceed to the next step.

View the shopping cart to review the selected courses and revise the quantities.
Click 'Continue Shopping' to return to the program listings.

After logging in or creating a new account, the registrant fills out participant information.
Multiple participants may be added, and associated to specific programs. These profiles may be updated at any time.

After participant information has been saved, the participants are assigned to their programs.
Payment details are entered, but the card is not charged until everything is confirmed in Step #4.

On the last step, the order is confirmed, the payment is processed and the registration process is completed.

To prevent unauthorized usage of payment data, key information is not retained by Apparatus after transactions have been completed. Users can review past transactions from their 'My Transactions' page.

Website INCLUDED, or choose to integrate Apparatus to your existing site.

The DotNetNuke CMS website can be extended with add-on modules or explored further online.

 

Similar to WordPress, Wix and others, you can self-manage your Apparatus website.
If stuck, call or email us for help! We extend sites to include blogs, newsletters, custom forms, your social media feeds or anything you might do on other systems!

“The time that this system has saved before and after registration is incredible. It allows me to quickly and easily maintain my class lists. We have had many comments from users that are extremely positive.”

“The Apparatus team have worked very hard to make this a user friendly system, and it shows. We get lots of compliments on our online registration process. ”

“When I started volunteering for the SHCA, we had about 20 adult and children's programs that we ran. We now have, on average, 60 adult and children's programs that we run three times a year, as well as approximately 13 summer programs as well. There is no way that I could have managed to expand, manage and maintain the SHCA programming without the aid of Apparatus.”
