      For all those asking about non- United States training locations (e.g. Philippines, SA, Qatar) we would love to bring this class abroad however the grant funding only permits us to conduct these classes within the United States. We don’t have an online version of this class due to the high interactivity of the class. If we can find a way to bring these outside the US, we will, but nothing planned as of yet!

      Hello Hal – the five-day is more detailed than the two-day class and we give time for the students to do “teach-backs” to practice their teaching skills. Unfortunately the five-day classes are filled to capacity and many of the two-day classes are nearly filled, so if you’re interested, be sure to register today!
