The Leadership Development classes are offered on a continuous basis at various Education Alliances around the state. Some of these classes charge a small fee, which covers lunch for training dates. Other classes are offered at no charge with lunch being on your own. Each class has a unique registration process, which is noted by each class. These classes are subject to change due to lack of enrollment, illness, inclement weather, etc.

Leadership Skills 1 is a 2-day class, Leadership Skills 2 is a 1.5-day class and Leadership Skills 3 is a 1-day class. Tests are administered in each class and certificates are awarded on successful completion.

If you don’t see an Education Alliance in your area, please contact Kendall Haywood, the Leadership Development Manager at khaywood@aidt.edu to discuss the possibility of beginning an additional Education Alliance.
