LAHSA is currently accepting applications from providers who want to be members of the Centralized Training Academy. The Q & A Webinar will teach providers about the application process.
The Centralized Training Academy consists of vendors who are certified to provide training for professionals in the homeless services industry.
The list of vendors will be posted on LAHSA’s website and will indicate which courses each trainer is qualified to deliver. Certification will last five years. As training opportunities are identified by LAHSA, the agency will contact qualified providers.
The webinar will be hosted Thursday, August 30, 10-11:30 a.m.
