    I am interested in taking attending and completing the certification training starting in May, but I am wondering would it be possible to make up for the first day of class on May 14th. I have my last final that same day.

      Hi Alani!

      Our May Certification Training is full and I started a wait list. Would you like of me to add you? The first day of training is a foundational day; however, we could work with you on making up the hours. The training that day is from 2:00-9:00pm. When are your final complete? If you would like to know more information and/or be placed on our wait list, please email me directly at aposila@centerforfamilyjustice.org

      Thank you!
