Want to host a Koru training?
If you have 5 or more colleagues who are interested in pursuing Koru teacher certification, you may find that hosting a training is an effective approach to quickly building your Koru community.
For online trainings, the hosting agency can choose the schedule format and timezone preference. For in person trainings, the hosting agency receives reduced tuition, and travel costs for your staff will be eliminated.
There is the additional benefit of broadening the Koru community in your region, which allows for a strong network of Koru teachers to share in continued learning and support.
