Private Onsite Training For Corporations and Associations

Call us and discuss your needs. We conduct face to face interactive training with your employees. This is a fantastic opportunity to instruct many employees at one time in one location.

This is a cost-effective way to provide face to face training in your own facility.  From NCCDP's inception, employees have continuously reported that the Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia training program was the most comprehensive and dynamic program they have ever attended.

If you are in charge of a conference, this is a fantastic seminar to offer to your participants.  Participants who have not attended a past seminar due to travel restrictions and travel costs won’t want to miss this training.

When Should I Schedule a Training?

As soon as you have a specific date. We recommend scheduling a training date (seminar) six months in advance.  If you have an urgent need for training and can not wait, we recommend contacting the NCCDP office directly. The NCCDP Corporate Staff will work with you to arrange a training date that is convenient for your needs. The NCCDP can also conduct weekend training.  Contact nccdpcorporate@portalstaging.nccdp.org or 1.973.729.6601.

What is the class size?

We do not dictate the size of the audience. We recommend that you have a large enough teaching space to comfortably accommodate the audience size. Appropriate teaching space includes tables and chairs. The environment should be noise-free and overhead paging eliminated during the seminar.  If possible the classroom should be located near restrooms.

What is the cost of On-Site Training?

We ask that you contact our corporate office to discuss your needs and the type of training you are interested in.  For the Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Seminar (8 - hour seminar 8:30 to 5:00), each participant receives a hand out notebook. The seminar is cost-effective because there is no class size limit. This saves your organization money when training a large group of employees.  In comparing the cost to send only a few employees to this seminar because of the fees (travel and time away from the job), many companies find this program cost-effective.  This is a program that is appropriate for all your staff. Having an on-site seminar allows for more of your employees to attend. Additionally, your marketing director may wish to invite guests such as local professionals, Geriatric Care Managers, Social Workers, etc.

How Far in Advance Should I Arrange For Conferences?

When you book a seminar, the NCCDP will provide a date to order the student handout notebooks. Student handout notebooks may be ordered directly with the NCCDP. Student handout notebooks can be ordered in a 3 ring binder with tabs, spiral bound with tabs, and or digital download. We do not allow the student handout notebooks to be copied. Payment is required at the time student handout notebooks are ordered. Once the notebooks are ordered, there are no refunds. At the time of booking your private training or association conference, the NCCDP will provide you with the costs of the student handout notebooks and discuss a plan that works best for you.

How Far In Advance Do I Need To Order Notebooks?

The NCCDP can provide you with a master hand out notebook (copy) and the organizer of the event would be responsible for making the copies exactly the way it is provided by the NCCDP. If you prefer, the NCCDP instructor can bring the notebooks to you. Notebooks are to be ordered 3 weeks in advance. Payment is required at the time the notebook order is placed. The notebooks fee is non-refundable. At the time of the booking, the NCCDP will provide you with the costs of the books and discuss a plan that works best for you.

Where is The Student Notebooks Shipped To?

The notebooks are shipped to the person who organized the event. We can not ship to P.O. boxes. There must be someone available to sign for the packages.  The NCCDP will only ship directly to a facility or business. The NCCDP is not responsible for lost packages.

Do You Offer A Corporate / Conference Discount for Certifications?

Yes. We support corporations' desire to train and certify their staff but also recognize budgetary needs. Upon completing the seminar, the facility will bundle the applications together, attach each employee’s certification or license, and a copy of the Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care training certificate. The company designee will go to portalstaging.nccdp.org and set up a corporate group (10 or more) account. The company designee will enter each employee's full name and email address, and submit payment. Immediately, the employees will receive an email with instructions to complete their applications online. This is a much faster way to have the staff apply for certification. Once bundled, the applications are mailed with payment to the NCCDP Corporate Office. Please contact the NCCDP for discount information.


The NCCDP can also offer a discount for participants attending a conference. The NCCDP will provide a letter to be given to your participants at a discounted price. Please call the NCCDP to ask about corporate or conference discounts.

We are often asked, "does the investment my company makes in training all our staff really pay off?" This pretty much sums up how we feel about training and the impact a great training program has on each individual staff member.

The Starfish Story

adapted from The Star Thrower
by Loren Eiseley (1907 - 1977)

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."

"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one."
