What are prerequisite sections?

Updated Aug 20, 2021

An error message appears when you try to register for an activity's section that requires participation in a prerequisite section.

Prerequisite error

PARKS DIRECT will block you from joining an activity that requires a prerequisite you haven’t completed, and it will bring up an error message, which states a rule hasn’t been satisfied. The error message also lists prerequisites that lift the block on the section.

Until you add the prerequisite section to your shopping cart, you can't complete registration for the blocked section.

The error message shows you the required prerequisite course. The prerequisite's section code is 16600-300A, which you must add to your shopping cart before registering for the original section. See above.
