In addition to PowerPoint presentations, there are also practical interactions with the participants. The training can either be virtual or in-person session of 3 hours.
We charge R 750 per person (Virtual or in-person). If the training is in-person additional fees will apply such as travel etc. We can also tailor-make the sessions if 3 hours is too long, but we do prefer 3 hours.
Disclosure of disabilities: Based on experience, many staff members want to disclose their disability after a DET session. We can assist with the facilitation of this process. We charge a one-time fee of R 1000 per person for the disclosure process.
