SKYPE CONFERENCE TRAINING
We can customize a conference training session for your staff that utilizes the "Skype" teleconference service available to most computer users. Your custom training outline can be emailed to you prior to the conference to facilitate note-taking and discussion. The "Skype" connection would facilitate direct question-and-answer communication during the training.
We would suggest that this training be billed to you at $450 per day and would include free phone follow-up for 2 months.
The topics that we could include in your custom training are:
- Special veteran needs & conditions
- Communication suggestions
- Finding veterans
- Special precautions
- Program staffing & settings
- Rider orientation &assessment
- Horse evaluation for Veterans
- Special horse equipment
- Initial lesson plan materials
- Skill progression
- How horses help veterans
- Horse retention
- Fundraising/Grant Writing
We can provide arena training for your staff to practice veteran class exercises using your horses.
We would also provide classroom training for your staff over the material you desire from the list in our "Skype Conference Training" column to the left. We would provide a conference training hand-out and powerpoint tool and design a training conference with you.
We would suggest that this training be billed to you at $700 per day plus travel expenses for up to 8 participants. If you desire more than 8 center participants, we would suggest bringing additional staff with us so that more arena training can happen, and increase our billing by $350 for each additional 4 participants. This training option would also include free phone follow-up for 2 months.
We also offer on-site training at our location using our horses for exercise training. We would suggest that this option be billed to you beginning at $450 per day depending upon the number of participants.
