PAC Certifications

This week is a good week to register for one of the Certification Courses that are coming up in May, June or July.

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.
