Resources

Online Training
During this online training, you will collaborate in “real time” with your facilitator and classmates via interactive group discussions, polls, chats, and whiteboards. Our training is designed to help you learn twice as much in half the time. In order to achieve the high levels of engagement needed to achieve such an ambitious objective, training is highly interactive and not lecture-based. That is to say, you will not be able to complete other work and activities during the live session.

This is an interactive, online training conducting using GoToTraining. (GoToTraining platform requirements.) We strongly recommended using a desktop/laptop computer and not a tablet or mobile device. Phone or microphone & speakers are necessary.
