Certified Organizations

Certified Organizations have trained with TimeSlipsTrainers and have embedded the method into their programming. 

They have access to all our resources for three years. After that, individual Certified Facilitators will be able to re-certify for a minimal fee and short questionnaire/consultation with a Master Trainer.

Our Organizational Certifications have been replaced with our Creative Communities of Care consultation model, which is easier for care communities  to implement and sustain. To find out more email Elaine Maly, Vice President of Development and Operations.
