    I am considering taking this training. What is the certification- accredited, or required follow up? Just wanted to know more about that. Also, is the training all 3 weeks via webinar? thank you!

    Do you offer any discounted prices for College Students?

    So if I’m reading this correctly I can sign up for the webinar for Saturdays (only, because I work full-time) from Jan. 13 – 27, 2024, which means there’s a total of 3 classes from 10 AM – 3:30 PM? I’m not required to attend three days per week, correct?

  4. I have a organization that help female victims escape their abusers by relocating them to another state to start a fresh new life for themselves. I think that this training for a certification for myself would be a great opportunity for me. Please view my website: krathouseofangels.org because I assist female victims across the United States. Thank you
