Training Workshops

Developmental Disabilities

As a part of the Statewide Developmental Disabilities Staff Training Program, The North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities has organized teleconferences, workshops, and conferences described in this brochure to meet training needs of the direct service staff, managerial and supervisory staff, individuals with disabilities, and their families.

 

Pre-registration should be completed two weeks prior to the workshop. If space is available when the workshop begins, those who did not pre-register will be allowed to enroll.

 

 

 

Training Webinars

NDCPD uses WebEx for our distance trainings. Participating sites need a computer with video and audio. See the attached pdf file “Meeting test site directions” to test your connection.

 

The other pdf document “Instructions for connecting audio video” gives the directions on how to connect either Voice over IP (VoIP) with your computer. If you cannot connect to the audio on your computer, you may still login to the WebEx site to see the presenter's slides and call in using your phone to hear the speaker (toll call).

Some hotel room blocks are held only until one month prior to the event. At that time, rooms are released to the general public and the hotel may not honor the state rate or hold a room for participants in MSU scheduled events. Please make your reservations early and ask for the MSU room block. In most cases, the name of the workshop will help the reservation clerk find the appropriate room block.
