2021 PAT Rep Training
Thank you for your interest in our Building Rep Training, being offered this fall. We are offering four modules on the fundamentals of Rep training and four modules on Racial Equity for Reps. We will be offering some advanced course over the year, so if you are a more seasoned Rep, please keep an eye out for notice about these advanced offerings.

All Rep training in the month of September will be held virtually. We are hopeful that by October we will be able to hold trainings in person at the PAT office, but cannot confirm whether that will be possible yet. Please stay tuned for updates.
