Basic MLS Class:
Completion of Basic MLS is mandatory within 30 days and ensures that every new member has a good working knowledge of the MLS system and RAMC Rules and Regulations. MLS Participants/Subscribers may obtain a User ID and password for the MLS system as soon as their application is processed. Once you have attended you are not required to attend another Basic MLS.
