Dr. Stephen Hart, Ph.D.

CONCEPT will work with you to determine training needs — for groups or individuals, training goals, objectives, implementation and compliance concerns—as well as training delivery. If you need us there, we are in-person. If time and travel are barriers, we’ll customize your online training.

Each of our professional training programs can be offered individually or bundled, in multiple, convenient formats. And we make learning relevant. Each program contains didactic materials as well as interactive exercises so you can apply what you learn to real-world situations.
