Operations and Training Unit

SDS Training has grown immensely over the last few years to its current status as a model program meeting the training needs of over 1,000 service providers as well as conducting internal division training for a staff membership of about 150. Our training menu includes recurring course curriculums that keenly exploit all methods of training course delivery including webinar, self-paced study, asynchronous online learning, and the traditional classroom. Regular info-sharing seminars are also routinely offered to keep service providers, participants and their families up to date with program changes and new developments.
