Director of Recruitment, Pioneer Health Services

"I had initially reached out to Laura to inquire about hiring her to provide training to our contracted employees, which is a new requirement of NPAs under AB1172. I am so grateful to have found her! She was familiar with the bill and was able to quickly and efficiently come up with a training. She was professional, responsive and had excellent follow through every step of the way. The training itself was informative, engaging and easy to use. Each section contained a small quiz and she kept a time stamp log in. I highly recommend Laura for any of your training needs!"

Cindy Cottier

M.A., M.Ed., CCC, SLP #4349 Executive Director Augmentative Communication Therapies

"I recently learned that I needed to complete a course on Positive Behavior Intervention to renew my NPA Certificate. I wasn't looking forward to the course because I have been working with students with special needs for nearly 40 years - I thought "of course I know all about this." I ended up taking 3 different courses and Laura Mooiman's AB 1172 Positive Behavior Training online course was by far the best one of the 3. In addition, not only did I enjoy the class but I learned a lot as well. I started implementing the techniques immediately. I would recommend this course to anyone that is interested."
