Bring NOPE Training to Your Agency – Including e-Learning!

Did you know that you can bring almost any NOPE seminar and certification product to your agency? If multiple members of your agency’s staff require professional education, contracting with NOPE for an on-site training can be a smart – and affordable – investment. The on-site approach allows instructors to devote more time to issues that are specific to your organization. The on-site approach also reduces or eliminates travel time along with lodging and transportation costs for your staff. And, depending upon the number of staff members that participate in the training, the per-person cost for the training product can be significantly lower than our regular registration fee. New for 2016, we can also make many of our e-Learning sessions available to your agency through our on-site model.

Whatever your training needs, NOPE will work with you to design an on-site program that meets your budget and is scheduled with your agency’s calendar in mind. For more information, please contact Betsy Bee, Regional Service Officer at or call 202-580-7203.
