Training for Professionals

Below is a list of suggested topics. The KATC encourages professional groups to work in collaboration with KATC to design a presentation to meet your group's needs. These 1 to 6 hour workshops are designed for professional and community groups. KATC can also work with your organization to provide a multi – day workshop series. The hosting organization is responsible for obtaining relevant continuing education credits. KATC will provide the necessary documentation for your organization to complete the application form. Effective 11/21/2022, Professional Development Workshop Fees: $700/3 hours or less - $1,000/4-6 hours. Travel location will determine any additional fees that could include lodging, rental car and/or gas fees. Please allow at least 8 weeks in advance to schedule a training.
