* A word on this training. It is really excellent. It will benefit you as a parent and as a member of a community. AND, If you do 10 minutes a day during this quarantine, You'll be done in no time!

When you open it, you'll find instructions on how to proceed. It's about 3 hours total, but can easily be broken up into short bits. I like to just put my earbuds in and listen while I clean or cook or exercise!
Once you complete CORE TRAINING, you'll be ready to do the training for the specific role you're interested in. You can move on to FAMILY COACH, FAMILY FRIEND, HOST FAMILY, or RESOURCE FRIEND training. These vary in length, but they are all excellent.
