CPS Training Specifics:

  • CPS trainings in Pennsylvania are generally 2 weeks/10 days. Classes usually run from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. We request students clear their calendars to be with us for 10 consecutive days.
  • Class size is between 12 (minimum) and 21 (maximum) students.
  • The two most common types of CPS trainings we offer in Pennsylvania are 1) agency staff trainings, and 2) open-enrollment trainings.
    • With agency staff trainings, we contract with organizations in the state to facilitate a closed training for 20-22 of the agency staff.

With open-enrollment trainings, we may contract with organizations who are able to send students but do not meet the minimum attendance of 12. The organization donates the training classroom space, and we assist with marketing to fill the class.
