We are excited to present our first live and in person training since March of last year!  Your board has worked hard over the past year and a half to provide alternative methods of training in order to ensure there was sufficient opportunity for our members to receive the amount of training necessary to maintain their certifications. Prior to the pandemic, there was an overabundance of opportunities for classes to maintain your certification however, during this transition time, please take advantage of each course offered, as arranging for training during the pandemic has been challenging and there may not be an overabundance of opportunity for training sessions, as it was prior to the pandemic.  In order to ensure the proper seating for this training, Please RSVP directly to this email or to Masks are required inside Palm Beach County Government buildings.
