Mini Workshop

Certification Open House

Learn more about the Voltage Control Facilitation Certification Programs

Let’s face it: the world has changed. The last couple of years has likely encouraged (or even forced) you to adapt, set new goals, and solve problems you didn’t even know you had. Our immersive and highly-participatory certification programs give you the skills and confidence to lead change in your work.

Join us for an open house where we will share about our certification programs and open up the floor to your questions. You will also have the opportunity to hear from previous certification students about their experiences and how the programs have benefitted them.
