Classes offered by the CTP have been yielding positive reviews:
CHRN Member Gretchen Glaub from Puget Sound Partnership had this to say of her experience with the CTP:
"It was beneficial to take some time out of a regular work schedule to interact with groups of a broader perspective. I appreciated the connections made with other class participants. The instructors were really engaging and the format was dynamic enough to keep partipant's attention throughout. I was excited to utilize the new skills and experiences into my work in the future. "
