BETE Questions?

Training Week Selection

Seats are guaranteed on a first-come, first-served basis. Please make sure to rank your week selection according to preference. We will do our best to fulfill your training week preference. However, securing a seat in the course guarantees you a seat in one of the training weeks, not necessarily your first choice. Once your payment is processed, you will receive an email from our office officially confirming your training week dates.

Class Requirements

  • Must complete the 30 – 40 hour prework activity
  • Must bring one hardcopy of the prework to class
  • Must attend the 3.5 days of training to receive a certificate of completion

Prior to attending the training, each participant is required to complete a 30-40 hour prework activity using a fictitious Baldrige award application. Your prework will be shared with others in the class. In class, participants work in groups at tables, sharing the results of their prework and discussing their findings with other training participants
