Online Training Available!
NPI is offering online training modules that complement our existing seminar curriculum. Click here for a list of available modules. We will be adding new online training modules on a regular basis. We also are accepting proposals from potential instructors on new topics.
Protecting seminar participants, instructors, staff of Cooperating Organizations, and everyone who works with NPI to fulfill its mission is our highest priority during this challenging time. As a precautionary measure against COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended in-person seminar training. However, online training modules are now available and we would be glad to discuss the option of online customized training with interested organizations.
As we navigate the new reality, please look for updates on training options on this site, on Facebook, and in listserv notices. Check back with us often and sign up to receive email notices using the Contact Us (Mailing List) button if you are not already receiving them.
