FCTC is an organization that has been providing affordable local training to substance abuse and mental health professionals in the Four Corners area for more than 20 years. The organization is run by volunteers from the professional community.
We have changes to note for the 2015 training year. We have done away with separate fees for pre-register and at the door and now have one price of $60 for our regular 6 CEU trainings. Students now are $20 and we have added a category for individuals who are not licensed and are not seeking CEU’s but want to learn about the topics we are presenting. They will pay $30. We still encourage you to pre-register so we can better plan facilities and food for each workshop. Again this year we will hold all our trainings at San Juan College but keep an eye on the upcoming trainings page for room assignments. If you are not already on the newsletter email list go to the link on the up coming trainings or the newsletter page and follow the instructions. We send out two reminders a month on up coming trainings and other non-FCTC trainings and job opportunities.
Watch this space for an updating and redesign of our site to add more resources and other information you may find useful.
