This course is great for in-service training.  Content includes videos, text with narration, interactive quizzes and completion certificate.

The goal of this tutorial is to give you a good foundation in the theory of Validation and descriptions of Validation techniques. This tutorial will not teach you everything about Validation, but it will give you enough to make a start and perhaps that will be enough to open up a whole new way of being with disoriented elderly people. After you have completed this tutorial, we encourage you to participate in a Validation Worker course.

If you are interested in purchasing this course for your students, colleagues or staff, you can save money by purchasing 5 one-year subscriptions for $200 ($40 each) or purchasing 10 one-year subscriptions for $300 ($30 each). Please email for large quantity orders.
