All upcoming sessions (except for May 26-28, 2021) will be Virtual Instructor-Led using ZOOM technology. Using ZOOM, the program will continue to be interactive and engaging involving role plays, exercises, and small group discussions. We are limiting each session to 24 participants.
“The virtual instructor-led format worked great.”
