Advanced Statutory Training

The Advanced Statutory Training course is designed for those individuals who have knowledge of the principles covered in the Basic Statutory course.  The course builds upon the knowledge gained in the first course and provides the student with an opportunity to develop a more in-depth knowledge of collective bargaining and related topics.  The class format relies principally upon hypotheticals and interactive exercises.
