This course builds on your skills as primary and secondary care
providers and focuses on developing your instructional abilities.
Through independent study, classroom sessions and practice teaching
assignments you will learn to organize, conduct, market and promote
the EFR programs. The class emphasizes hands-on skill practice and
demonstrations and builds self-confidence.
