Training

DUE TO COVID 19, MOST IN-PERSON TRAININGS HAVE BEEN CONVERTED TO LIVE ONLINE TRAININGS. THESE TRAININGS WILL TAKE PLACE VIRTUALLY AND WILL REQUIRE PARTICIPATION DURING THE ENTIRE TRAINING. AS THE CURRENT HEALTH CRISIS IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING, GNESA WILL FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND WILL MAKE CHANGES TO TRAINING IF/WHEN NECCESSARY. SOME TRAININGS REQUIRE IN-PERSON LEARNING AND WE WILL OFFER THOSE TRAININGS ONCE WE FEEL THAT IT IS SAFE TO DO SO. PLEASE CONTACT GNESA WITH ANY QUESTIONS. 

 

Welcome to GNESA's training page! We are currently working on scheduling tranings for advocates and nurses. If you do not see the training you are interested in below, please check back for updated training information or contact GNESA to be placed our our mailing list. Once future training dates are set, further training information and registration links will be posted here on our website:
