Upcoming Live Course

COVID-19 Update

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, in 2020, and into the foreseeable future, we have limited our planning of “live” course locations, and have none to announce at this time. We expect this to change by 2021. In a typical year, PCT Learning Center hosts at least 4 rounds of a combination of our PCT process course complement around the United States. We seek out attendee/sponsor companies and firms as our “live” location in a selected city, and then enroll students until the locations and courses are full. Most sites accommodate no more than 50-60 live attendees per course. As soon as our “live” course planning resumes, announcements will appear on these pages. Please check back for announcements, and sign up for our monthly PCT Newsletter for updates. When reinstated, the live courses will correspond to the on-line/on-demand course selection in terms of sign, scope, and content.
