CTRI provides professional development training to over 20,000 people each year. But, more important than what we do, is what we believe.
At the heart of our workshop material and resources is a belief that training, knowledge, and skill development changes individual lives, communities, and organizations. Because of this belief, we take great care in developing our material to be of the highest quality possible.
When it comes to learning, we believe that in-person training experiences far surpass that of online or individual learning. When we are learning together, in-person, there is something fundamentally different – and we believe more valuable – that simply can’t be replicated by any other learning platform.
