Can I Arrange to Have Training for Just My Respective Department? I Enjoyed Training But Need One for My Entire Department.

Yes, based upon a unit/department’s need training can be provided for a singular unit/department - as long as there is a critical mass of participants.

She will schedule a meeting with the requestor to discuss and develop the appropriate training requirements, arrange for a team of trained leaders to co-facilitate and identify a date for the training.

Can the NCBI Training Model Be Used Independently of the Whole? I Really Liked Certain Parts of the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) Training (Welcoming Diversity or Handling Controversial Issues) Training & Would Like to Use Just Those Components for a Workshop. Can I Do That?

No. You are not permitted to use any part of the copy written information or NCBI modules in part or whole. This safeguard is put in place to o protect the integrity of the NCBI training principles and practices. As a training office, national trainers in the work, and senior training leaders we purchase the rights annually to utilize the skill-sets provided by NCBI.
