In order to participate in virtual training, the following criteria must be met: 

Have access to an electronic device (laptop, cellphone, tablet) and a high-speed Internet connection.
High-speed Internet will be a necessity to maintain connection and to hear and see what is happening. 

 Have reserved/protected space and time for training.
Please make arrangements for children to be cared for while you are in training.  This may require parents to participate in different rounds. 

Be willing to actively participate.
NTDC Training is an interactive experience.  Taking part in the online training means that you are willing to be involved in the interactive nature of the training sessions in an online format, including being present on screen during active training times. If you are not on screen with the camera on throughout the ENTIRE training session you WILL NOT receive credit for attending the class.
