We strive to offer a variety of training options and encourage participants to sample a variety of training methods. Some of us learn best in a group, so that we can verbally process new information. Others are more self directed and learn best by reading and reflecting. Whichever mode of training you decide to take, we applaud and thank you for taking the time to stretch your knowledge and build your skills through professional development.
