CPPA Package “School Media Management at Critical Times"The package incorporates two workshops per year. These are Media Interview Training and Crisis Communication Planning. The first time a school leader or leaders attend, the Introductory Workshop applies. Then in every year following, they attend the Refresh and Update options.  

The CPPA Package option applies to those who commit to both training events annually. For those who commit to one, the non-package price applies. The only exception to this is school leaders who have already participated in one of these events. For them, the CPPA Package price for the event they haven’t completed will be charged. Then they can move into the Refresher Workshops the following year. Click on the individual course names below for more information on each.
