The program includes asynchronous learning activities available through the Knowledge Center as well as four web-based meetings with faculty and mentors. Participants should plan to spend approximately five hours per week to successfully complete the LTP. Do you think your team is ready for the NICHE LTP? Check out our leadership training overview!
