Our ACCELERATED 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.
