Our courses may have skill or learning pathways, that lead to a stronger credential, at the end of the set of courses. The Skill and Learning Pathway courses are more time consuming and require more rigorous testing to achieve credentialing. Courses within the Skill or Learning Pathways can be taken individually if one would just like to earn CEs for their career.
Our parenting courses are unique to our personal development programs. These courses assist individuals, who are striving to be better parents, or care providers for children, in being more effective in their practices. Whether you are a care provider or a parent, our parenting courses can help you learn the latest, evidence-based models, in best practices for the treatment of children.
If you work in advocacy, law enforcement, non-sworn law enforcement, human or social services or are a medical professional, the Achievement Academy has courses that are designed to assist you in your field. Too often, training is solely designed to assist therapeutic practitioners in treating their clients. Gray’s Trauma-Informed Care Services, has designed courses, with intention, for the improvement of care services, outside of counseling psychology. While therapist, or counseling providers can take courses to improve their skillset within their industry, our organization has taken a collaborative and allied health approach to training care services providers.
We hope that you will enjoy the services that our organization provides. We care about patients/clients/providers/law enforcement and other care agents. It is our hope that our services can be a large part of your journey to become a more effective leader within your profession.
