What’s New?

Website updated August 12th 2020
NOTES: Most classes that have been canceled or postponed due to Covid-19 will probably be rescheduled later in 2020 or early in 2021, once the global crisis has abated. Please do check back for updates.
Also, TBR Certified Trainers are hard at work designing/developing a TBR-Virtual Edition Class. Class participants will learn to deliver dynamic and effective virtual training by applying the best of brain-based, virtual training practices and tools. Release dates and registration information will be posted here by early October 2020.
The TBR-VE Class will be offered in addition to (not in replacement of) the face-to-face 2-day TBR Practitioner Class. It will not be a substitute for the requirements for the Trainer Certification Course (TCC).
