Training is offered in several formats:

Small Group – Small group trainings are held on our site for 3-12 participants.

Individual – At LifeABILITY, we recognize that one size does not fit all. Our individual trainings follow the same curriculum as our group trainings, but without the distractions of a group, and customized to your specific needs.

Sponsored – We offer local agencies and businesses the option of sponsoring a training. This is a great way to offer a savings to agencies that have a number of people in a specific training. These are also available at your site too.

Consulting – LifeABILITY offers some services on a per hour consultation basis. This allows you to pay for only what you need, charged in 15 minute increments.

All of our classes and services are streamlined to give you the information you need (without all the fluff), including practical tools you can put into use the same day. Here are some of the possibilities –
