We are excited to announce online and in-person events around the Eastern Hemisphere conferences! There are many opportunities for you to take your training team to the next level. DC&A is supporting you by sponsoring those events at no cost for candidates. Travel and other expenses are not included.

We will have Leadership (Online) and Presentations (Eastern Hemisphere Conference only) certifications, Master Trainer certification and Recertification, Carnegie Master recertification and DNA. We will start registering 2 candidates from each franchise first, if you have more than 2 candidates for one event, please reach out to Carnegie Learning Center to add them to a waiting list. After one month with the registrations open, if we do not fill an event, we will communicate to you and add the candidates in the waiting list. You can find a more detailed list of all the Trainer Certification and Recertification Events HERE. Registration for the Eastern Hemisphere Conference is open. You can register for these Trainer and Recertification Events HERE.

Please review the PreDNA/ DNA Prep Checklist–when preparing for the DNA session. Also, please see the Tandem And DNA Preparation Guidelines for information on completing tandems prior to the Certification events, allowing your candidate to be certified immediately following the event.

Please note that for Master Trainer certification, Carnegie Learning Center will add all registrations to a waiting list and will need an e-mail from the franchisee, confirming that the candidate meets the criteria before confirming their registration in the event.
