Following confirmation of a training:

  • Chris Garcia, Office Services Supervisor II, will develop and email you the contract/training agreement.
  • Complete and return the DCC training contract to Chris Garcia, Office Services Supervisor II, cgarcia@dcc-cde.ca.gov.

A "Certificate of Completion" is available for dissemination to participants at the conclusion of each workshop. We strongly recommend that, as appropriate, the sponsoring agency ensures that parents, general and special education staff, administrators and community agencies (Mental Health, Regional Centers, etc.), are invited to attend workshops presented by Diagnostic Center staff.
