Please see below for some important changes to our training registration process at The Right Door.

  1. For your convenience, you can email your training registration requests directly to the Training Office: Include the following information about your staff member: name, date of hire, email address, phone number.
  2. Your registered staff and your facility will receive a reminder email one week prior to each training.
  3. If your staff is unable to attend a training, please email no later than 5 pm the day before the training.
  4. In order to increase our training capacity and to offer more opportunities for your facility to satisfy training requirements, our agency has instituted a fee for no-shows. Beginning March 1, 2024, if a staff member is registered for a training and does not attend, and if no contact is made with our Training Office, a $10 no-show fee will be charged to your facility, to be paid before any additional training registration can occur.
