OACPs New Training Center is LIVE!

As part of OACP membership benefits, we're excited to be able to offer our members a Training Center packed full of training videos from our past conferences. Log in to the Members Only area and click on Training in the upper ribbon and a drop-down menu will give you a list of F6 categories to choose from. All videos from that category are housed in order by the date of the conference. Simply click on the link of the video to view the training, the password is provided below the video title.

Thanks to a generous grant from DPSST we'll be transitioning to a more robust platform in the weeks to come, but in the meantime you can utilize the Training Center in its current format. We couldn't wait another minute to bring you these valuable training offerings, and we hope this adds tremendous value to your OACP membership.
