ALLERCOACH™ CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
Watch! Food Allergy Gal Discusses AllerCoach™
Words of Praise
This course is fantastic. I work in an education environment and this course rocked!!. The learning objectives were clear and tied to every component of the course. The materials were extremely helpful. And, most importantly, the instructors had great skills at engaging trainees virtually. By calling on people and pointing to content via while continually sharing information on the screen, kept everyone engaged. I also felt that the assessments (tests and role plays) were not only a great way to assess student learning, but they also helped us grow and learn through the execution. I love the model IFAMA created. - Tiffany M.
