We provide training to people who have the committed intention of implementing the entire program at least once in Sacramento County. You can add additional aspects to the program but you cannot take anything away and must run the program as it is set up.

Yes but you will have to pay a fee. Fee depends on amount of participants and location of training. Please contact Shari Egeland (916) 362-2000 x14

7. What if I want to become certified in a group program but I do not have a place to hold the group?

The group programs can be done at a variety of free community centers, cafes, restaurants and other free spaces in the greater Sacramento area. If you feel comfortable you can implement this program in your living room or garage space. For more information on free spaces in Sacramento County please contact Shari Egeland (916) 362-200 x14
