The latest news from Los Angeles Training Consortium.
In order to help make everyone's work schedules a little easier, we have condensed our 2-Day Parent Partner training down to a single day. All of the material from the two days is still covered in detail, but it is now a more convenient training when it comes to Parent Partners with tight schedules. With the recent changes in Wraparound implementation in LA County around the use of the traditional Plan of Care document, the LATC has put our POC training on hold. However, LA County is still using the Family Safety Crisis Plan in their program implementation. Therefore, LATC is now offering just the Safety Crisis Planning training as a single day for easier scheduling and more cost effective training solution.
Happy New Year everyone! The LATC is gearing up for a busy 2018. Our 2018 calendar is currently open or registrations for all of 2018. In addition to Wraparound programs, many of our training modules also apply to LA County intensive Home-Based Services (IHBS) programs as well.
Due to scheduling conflicts with the training venue, the location for the Wraparound Basic Training for the month of June has been changed. The new location is 14545 Sherman Circle, Van Nuys, CA 91405 IMPORTANT NOTE: theere is NO parking on site. There is FREE PARKING across the street (Sherman Circle). There is a large parking structure behind the medical complex across the street. All training attendees are free to park on the 3rd floor and above - all day. There is an elevator and the walk across the street to the training venue is not long at all. The training location is near the major intersection of Sherman Way and Van Nuys Blvd. Sherman Circle is a small side street that cuts between Sherman Way and Van Nuys Blvd. Please consult your smart phone direction apps.
The LATC's popular 2-day Parent Partner training is coming May 8-9th in West LA.
