Training FAQ

Is there a cost for training sessions?

Nope! We never charge for any of our training sessions, nor do we charge for the supplies we distribute at the end of our sessions.

Are virtual training sessions offered?

When possible, we prefer to perform in-person sessions rather than virtual sessions. We've found that in-person sessions are the most effective for ensuring participants retain the information covered during training, but if necessary we do offer virtual training sessions.

How long are the training sessions?

Group sessions usually last between 30 to 45 minutes, sometimes longer with larger groups. Our "Crash Course" is accomplished in 15 minutes or less. When necessary, we can make slight adjustments to the duration of our training sessions.

Do all participants receive free take-home supplies?

Participants of our comprehensive training will receive both take-home Narcan Nasal Spray & a supply of Fentanyl Testing Strips (FTS). Those who complete our comprehensive training virtually will receive a one-time code to waive the $6.99 shipping cost on our free Harm Reduction Care Package. Participants of our "Crash Course" sessions will not receive FTSs due to a lack of time for adequate training.

How do I schedule a training session?
