The online training consists of seven modules which you can work through at your own pace.  The 8th Module are the two documents we will require you to sign before confidential information can be shared.   It is not our intent to rush you through the on-line learning and the following practicum work.  If at any time you feel pressure, please contact the coordinator and talk about your needs.  The pace is yours to set.   

After reading each module, touch base with your assigned contact or trainer to go over any questions you might have and to talk in general about what you learned. 

Once the modules are completed, you will work a couple of cases as an observer.   When you feel comfortable with the process you then progress to being the second on the conference team where you will stay until you tell us that your are ready to take lead.
