Upcoming Training Schedule

TRAINING UPDATE: Thank you for your interest in our training program. We are excited to be back providing trainings after a brief pandemic hiatus, although for the safety of our staff and community, we are providing all trainings virtually using a live interactive webinar format through Microsoft Teams. Advanced registration through EventBrite is required to attend. Paid consultation hours will be available for select trainings in EventBrite; if purchased, the trainer will reach out to you in advance to coordinate. Registration will be open until the Friday prior to each training at 8:00am. Please sign in 5 minutes early to ensure sufficient audio and video connection. We ask that you have your video turned on for the duration of the training. Please note that not all trainings are open to the public due to content specific to MOPS clinical staff. 


If you would like to register for a  training please register through Eventbrite and review the Training Expectations. You may cancel your registration any time up to one business day prior to the training and receive a full refund, minus EventBrite fees.  No refunds will be given for cancellations made with less than one business day notice.  Agencies are welcome to send a substitute participant in place of a registered participant if a registered participant cannot attend; this must be arranged in advance to ensure the participant receives the link to join the training.  In the event that a training is cancelled by MOPS, you will receive a full refund or a credit for a future training, whichever you desire.  A confirmation email will be sent to registered participants within 24 hours of registering for the training.  Participants will be provided with instructions to join the training at least one day prior to the training via email. Within one week of completion, each training participant will receive a personal CE certificate form with their name on it signed by the program administrator.  Mid-Ohio Psychological Services, Inc. has been approved as a CE provider by the Ohio Psychological Association (#311358292) and the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker & Marriage and Family Therapy Board (RCS060502). We are approved to provide CE credits for Psychologists, Counselors, and Social Workers. We make every effort to accommodate persons with disabilities.
