The 2 days with the ITL is followed by faculty-endorsed activities.

Yes. In order to receive a Certificate of Completion for the program you must attend all sessions. The first morning is regarded as an essential foundation for all other sessions. If you have to be absent for an unexpected reason, we will ask you to make up one or both of those days in a later program.

Yes. If you successfully complete the Principles and Practice program a Certificate of Completion will be provided to you once you have completed the 2-day ITL component and the faculty-endorsed component.
