Workshop Prerequisites

DONA International trainers often have specific prerequisites for attending their workshop, so be sure to check with your trainer when you register. Trainers manage their own workshop registration, so reach out directly to the trainer to get signed up.

Workshop Type

As you search for workshops you will see that they are listed as virtual, in-person, or hybrid.

– Virtual: a LIVE virtual workshop where 100% of the requirements for workshop completion are met virtually with a DONA-approved trainer

– In-Person: a workshop where 100% of the requirements for workshop completion are met in-person with a DONA-approved trainer

– Hybrid: Hybrid workshops are those that have a virtual and in-person component. Both parts must be taught by the same trainer and, when possible, with the same cohort. Hybrid workshops are not trainings taught in person with a live/streaming video feed.
