On-site Trainings

Schools and organizations may request on-site training to prepare local staff to implement each component of Check & Connect. One great plus to having our staff come to you is that you also receive pre- and post-training consultation to determine your specific needs (in preparation for the training) and to assist with implementation (follow-up). The cost is determined based on number of participants.
