HCQU Northwest Training Opportunities
AT Milestone HCQU Northwest, we offer trainings on a variety of subjects, in a variety of formats. Our trainings focus on physical health, behavioral health, safety, and more general topics such as team building, leadership, and assertiveness. Our goal is to help support staff get the information they need to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilites live happy, healthy lives.
Our trainings come in a variety of formats, including on-site instructor-led, home-study, and webinar. We plan to offer online trainings in the near future, as well. Trainings must be attended in their entirety to receive credit. We do not give partial credit for trainings.
Our courses are free-of-charge, with the exception of the Mental Health First Aid (Adult and Youth) trainings. We charge a small fee for these courses to help offset the cost of the materials needed. Our trainings are approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, Office of Developmental Programs.

Thirsty (for Knowledge) Thursdays Webinar Series
We know how difficult it can be to find time to fit in all the training you need, so we recently started a new webinar series called "Thirsty (for Knowledge) Thursdays" - or Thirsty Thursdays for short.
These one-hour webinars will be presented the fourth Thursday of each month (4th day of the 4th week) at 10:00 and 2:00, and will run from January to October.
Our Thirsty Thursdays webinar series will resume January 25, when Connie Copley educates us about Seasonal Affective Disorder.
We will also be offereing on-demand webinar trainings in the near future.
