“I took NAPHN’s live online CPHD training course in May 2020. There was a lot of detailed information to cover but the course materials were very well organized & easy to follow, and the instructors were excellent. Their mastery of the subjects presented was obvious from the beginning, and their communications skills were outstanding. I felt the students & instructors built a “virtual” camaraderie over the course of the week that made me look forward to reconnecting each morning. I can’t recommend this course highly enough!”
