Why choose TMTC courses
There are now many training courses in the area of suicide prevention and wellbeing being offered in Aotearoa – New Zealand. So why choose to attend a TaylorMade course over the others. As a point of difference the TMTC training is pitched at a more advanced level that builds on the information covered in foundation level courses. That is not to say that people who have had no suicide prevention training would not benefit from attending a TMTC workshop.
