How it Works
This course is a self-guided online training with a combination of readings, videos, and discussion/reflection questions. A .pdf certificate will be issued upon completion of all course material and a course evaluation.
For multiple staff members of an organization who are taking this course at the same time, we recommend forming your own discussion group and meeting weekly for 4 weeks to review the discussion/reflection exercises and questions at the end of each lesson.
