Our ACCELERATED Training Schedule

Training Schedule

Applicants to the ACCELERATED PROGRAM have already earned somewhat related professional certifications and somewhat related background education. This Program is also called the “THE 10-20 PROGRAM” because it is offered through a series of 10 different Modules or Episodes over a total of 20 training hours.

Each Training Module or “Episode” may either be offered in a continuous 2.5-day (20-hour) live Boot Camp OR attended through online (ZOOM) workshops and scheduled as either:

  • 2 Episodes/week x 2 HOURS each – over 5 continuous weeks; OR
  • 4 Episodes/week x 4 HOURS each – over a “Faster Track” schedule of 2.5 weeks: OR 
  • Some other combination of 10 x 2-HOUR Episodes or Modules scheduled over a total of 20 hours – based on consensus among each Certification Cohort registered with GAPLD.
