PREPSEC International promotes multiple programs that can be used both individually or together with 3-4 other programs. Most of these programs are published by Research Press, but some training is advisable to ensure their optimal implementation. Training seminars are offered in different countries and in various languages. Please feel free contact the name identified with each program or one of the PREPSEC board members for consultation when deciding to implement one or more of the programs.
Programs in short
PREPSEC International is concerned with establishing training and implementation standards for the different programs. Like Goldstein`s recommendation PREPSEC does not wish to limit the use of the program through licenses, but in order to secure proper dissemination and training standards the organization will recommend that the implementation recommendations are followed.
