ISSTD is excited to announce the introduction of a new type of course to our Professional Training Program – the hybrid course. These courses allow participants to participate either in-person with the instructor or via the computer using Zoom. Our first hybrid course launched in September in Chapel Hill, NC with instructor, Gary Peterson. A total of 20 individual – 4 in-person and 16 online—are participating in the inaugural course. Participants in the class come from all over the US as well as Canada and Australia. The hybrid course varies from our traditional online courses which are taught through reading and online discussion boards. New hybrid courses are being added to the schedule starting this November with the Introduction Part I course being taught in Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky by new PTP faculty members, Holly Maddy and Dawn Hinton. For additional information on this course, check out the course flyer. Additional hybrid options will be added , starting in November, and the Introduction Part 1 course being taught in New York City by Rebeca Sherman, starting in January 2017.
