Distance Learning (DLP) WFR Recertification Course:
We had very favorable response from the DLP WFR Recertification course in the last 2 years. The distance learning component of the course means that everyone has one less day of class because you come to the class more prepared to enter the practical session. For more information see the DLP student booklet listed below. Another benefit of this course is that the course is two days rather than three days which fits into a weekend.
What is the DLP process?
