Sometimes getting away from home isn’t an option… Sometimes the training need is immediate and can’t wait… Sometimes the only time you have is an hour or two in the middle of the night while everyone else is sleeping.
The availability of online training opportunities is changing how families access information and training. Periodically, FACT will post links to trainings and archive trainings making them easily accessible to you.
