3-5 days prior to the session, the Regional Program Coordinator will contact you to ask for a list of names of the registered participants. This will allow us to prepare certificates for each person that is attending. On the day of the session, please ensure that your room is set up with chairs for enough participants and a TV and DVD player or laptop, projector, screen and speakers.
