Frequently Asked Questions
Who attends your workshops?

With more than 60 combined years of expertise, they partner with trainers around the globe to deliver training that is second to none.
How long are the sessions?
TDN one-on-one and seminar sessions are typically 2 hours. Our one and two day seminars/conferences meet 5-6 hours per day, each with one hour for break. Half-day sessions meet for 3-4 hours. Our 4-6 week youth sessions meet one day each week, 2 hours per day. Typically the youth sessions are conducted in the early evening times and accompanied by parent chaperones.
Can I bring family members or friends with me?
Yes, in some cases. For youth sessions, parents and guardians are always encouraged to attend, at no additional cost. It is contingent on the organization's agreement with the type of training being conducted. The classes and attendees are scheduled in advance. If family and friends participate, as they sometimes request, and share the learning and material, an additional cost may occur.
Does the sessions offer certificates of completion?
Yes. Most of the courses offer certificates of completion at the end of the sessions. Some exceptions to this would be for the information only sessions.
How does an organization pay for the workshops?
Organizations and individuals can cover training costs through cash, check, credit card or pay pal. Educational institutions and organizations are required to cover a 50% deposit before start of session, followed by the remaining balance no later than 3 days after the first session. For youth and students, the educational institutions often arrange to invoice the parents or guardians internally.
Are the workshops handicap accessible?
This is always contingent on the facilities and venues being used. Most school and company organizations have amenities, such as elevators or handicap accessible rooms. If you have concerns about walking, the availability of elevators or need special accommodations, the best option is to discuss the needs with the workshop trainer.
