authorities, and staff of TAP member sites have unlimited
access to trainings without paying registration fees.
If your site is a TAP member, we can explore with you the
possibility of scheduling a “closed” training
at your site for a minimum of 15 attendees. You can discuss
this with Carol St. Cyr at 617.854.1090. Also, your suggestions
