Here is some information on the development of our training and certification programs that first began development in 1985...


This page provides a lengthy list of speaking, training, & certification services, each with a brief summary of the various programs currently available.

To contact us about speaking, training, and/or certification, please see this Contact Us page.

The speaking, training, and certification programs developed in response to increasing numbers of  laypersons, professionals, and organization requesting formal training to integrate Role-Playing Games (RPGs) into their environment, aiding them in the transition process toward autonomy in developing and implementing their own RPG-based program plans. Rather than take decades to self-train, you can receive training to optimize and expedite your experience and the experiences of your clients, students, and/or RPG players in general.

Whether you just wish to learn about RPGs in general, in the hopes of playing or running your own games, or you wish to use RPGs to help with instruction or therapeutic goals, these programs can help speed up the process from concept to implementation based on the decades or prior experience from the instructor(s).

We can provide on-site speaking and training using your facilities, or for locations lacking facilities, we can come to your location with our mobile facility, the Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer.
