Will you offer the class specifically for our agency?
We welcome the chance to bring any of our programs to your agency, or mutually agreed upon location. We provide agency specific classes, meaning that everyone in the class is from the same agency. This can typically be done when at least eighteen people from the same agency have enrolled in the class, or when an agency training coordinator requests it. In addition to learning new skills, participants in these classes have the chance to be part of a valuable team building experience, and address specific agency issues in a closed setting.
