TAP trainings are open to everyone with registration and payment
of a modest fee. Special rates are offered to staff of housing
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
on topics, course content and diversity of TAP trainers are
welcome, so please contact me at 617.854.1084 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
