Our individualized professional trainings are 2 hours in length. The location of our training can take place at your location or here at Philadelphia FIGHT. Upon the completion of each training, a certificate of completion is given with CEU’s, if approved by the respective licensing board based on their timetable for CEU approval. To assess the efficiency of our work, we also ask participants to complete an
evaluation upon the completion of the training.

If you have a specific topic request for professional development training, we can further explore your request together to see how we can accommodate your needs. As with most professional trainings, a great deal of time and effort is put into the planning process and execution. A nominal negotiable fee is requested for our PDT services.
