Offsite Contract Training
Nechi trainers can travel to your community to conduct on-site contract training. Sponsoring organizations have found that it is cost-efficient to bring Nechi into their community to train a group rather than sending one or two individuals to the Centre for professional development training. Virtually all Nechi training can be delivered in your community. Train more for less! If you are interested in learning more about Offsite Contract Training, please call us at (800) 459-1884.
