Pace is proud to offer leading-edge training in best practice, designed for community members, professionals, students, first responders, and front-line workers in our region. Workshops are facilitated by skilled, caring, and enthusiastic professionals with decades of training and experience, making this training invaluable.

Community Support Training is held in the Pace Office Training Room and is offered in the Fall (September-December) and Winter (January-April) every year. We are also able to provide these workshops to agencies and community groups outside of the scheduled dates and times, by request. All presentations and topics can be tailored to suit the needs of the requesting agency.
