Training Delivery Options

Expanding your knowledge and learning new skills takes time and dedication. We understand that heavy caseloads, lack of resources, and work force shortages make it difficult to participate in all the learning opportunities you would like.

Whether you’re advancing your own professional development, or scheduling training for your organization, we are here to help you find the best solution for your training needs.

We offer three convenient delivery options — in class workshops at various locations throughout Oregon, on-site team training, and self-paced online learning modules - in addition to personalized mentoring and train-the-trainer programs.
