Learning Sessions

Learning methods are based on adult learning principles and are designed to be active and engaging. These include a combination of didactic presentations, demonstrations, role-play practice, small group activities, and opportunities for participants to see, model, and practice new skills. Learning is designed for immediate application in daily work.

Attendance at all three days of both Learning Sessions (6 days total) is required to roster as a professional with Project BEST.
