Regional Training
Training Events
The ALGA Education Committee sponsors regional trainings in various cities each year. These one or two-day training events bring seasoned ALGA instructors to your area and usually offer 8 to 16 CPEs.

Training topics vary based on local interests, and may include a one-day workshop on ALGA's peer review process. Completing the workshop empowers participants to become team members on ALGA peer reviews. 

Become a Sponsor
If your office would like to sponsor a regional training, please contact Deborah Jenkins.
