If you are interested in delivering the 8-hour course in a live setting, OR you are interested in having an instructor travel to your location to give a live group training, email your request to [email protected].
Half Online / Half Live Option
The course can be delivered in “halves.” If you are interested in delivering this format, or want to request an instructor to deliver this format, email your request to [email protected].
