PAC Certifications

We are not conducting any Certification Courses this week.  We recently finished a Trainer Certification in Grand Rapids and a Consultant Cert in Nashville, TN . Here are a few comments from attendees:

WOW! I can’t wait to get back and start using some of the new skills I learned

I feel like I have a whole new set of tools in my Consulting Toolbox! I loved it. It was very hard work. Well worth it!!!

If you are responsible for helping others learn about dementia and how to provide person-focused care, you might want to consider one of our Trainer Certifications in Seattle, WA, Halifax, NS, or even London, England! Click here to learn more about Trainer Certifications.

If Trainer is not your gig, consider the possibility of Coach, Consultant, or Engagement Leader.

Wanting to get new habits of care in place, consider Coaching.

Trying to address challenges in care and help teams work together for success, find out about Consultant.

Or perhaps the greatest support position of all, an Engagement Leader is what is needed to change the flow of the day, the mundane into the meaningful, the way people spend time. If so, check out our Engagement Leader Certification.
