Professional Development

Training, Technical Assistance, Capacity Building, E-Learning, Consultation and CEUs

For more than 30 years, ETR has been building the capacity of organizations, schools and government agencies through our learning systems services—training, technical assistance and consultation.

Our Quality Sets Us Apart

The science of learning infuses every aspect of our trainings and services. We base all of our service delivery on current research and best practices, with a goal of moving learners to action. Our services are uniquely designed to first prime the brain for learning, and then include research-based components, such as relevant content, interactivity, reflection, practice and a call to action. And we don't stop there! We provide continued follow-up support to strengthen the transfer of learning. Even our visuals—slides, handouts, worksheets—are designed with these elements in mind.

With literally thousands of participants in our network, we have an exceptional pool of experts to draw upon, and an impressive science-to-solutions resource bank that keeps our services on the cutting edge.

Our services span the learning systems continuum from one-on-one consultation, to large event planning and delivery. We conduct site visits and are skilled at coordinating multi-site events for cross-sharing and advanced networking.

Because we firmly believe that quality professional development is a process, not a one-time event, we develop partnerships  with our participant groups that allow us to address the unique circumstances of each organization and its staff. We offer customized solutions that help participants learn “the art of how to do something better.”

ETR offers continuing education credits for all of our professional development events for Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES), Master Certified Health Education Specialists (MCHES), Registered Nurses in California–Board of Registered Nurses (BRN) and Behavioral Health Professionals in California–Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS).
