Quality training is essential for ongoing systems enhancement and quality improvement. The CDDO works to coordinate, facilitate, organize, and/or assure that training is focused on areas of local interest and need. This page will provide you with cost effective training opportunities available throughout the community and the necessary contact information to coordinate involvement.
