Registration:

Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-served basis although we reserve the right to limit the number of participants from any one center. Teachers must register themselves using their own email address and personal phone number. This information is needed for communications to confirm registration and to communicate any changes to training logistics.

Virtual Training Requirements:

Participants will receive an email with handouts and the link for Zoom three days prior to each training session. It is recommended that you print all handouts prior to each session.

Participants must log in at least fifteen minutes prior to the start of the session to make sure audio, video and internet connection works. Be sure to name your device by using your first and last name only. You may need to download Zoom first if you have not used it before, so please make sure you give yourself enough time to troubleshoot.

Participants must log in on their own device using a computer, laptop, or tablet.

To minimize disruptions, we ask that you mute your microphone when you are not speaking and/or sharing.

To avoid any disruptions, participants will not be admitted into the training session 15 minutes after the start time.
