Comprehensive System of Personnel Development

Serving Eastern Montana

I have received word from OPI that all face to face trainings are suspended until further notice. I am working to bring Virtual trainings to you this fall and winter. Please check back to see what is being offered virtually via ZOOM.

During this time of Virtual Training please note that CSPD trainings are free, if you reside outside the state of Montana books and supplies cannot be furnished. We will provide you with a resource list as the grant we operate under is specific to Montana educators. Recordings if available are not a substitute for attending trainings.

Please keep track of your certificates.

If you register and are unable to fulfill your commitment please cancel via Eventbrite or email to let me know as many sessions have a limited number of seats available.

Thank you for your understanding and dedication
