How Does it Work?

Online Classes

Webinars

Webinars are a fantastic introduction to the world of online learning!  You will learn about a specific topic of you choice for approximately one to two hours, with plenty of time at the end for your questions.  A recording will be made available to you after the fact, so live attendance is NOT required. $19.95 each.

FDSA Training Camp

Held once a year and rotated through a variety of locations, Denise presents several sessions during camp where she provides hands on feedback to the participants.  A three day auditing spot is $235 per person.
