Some live courses will require NCS leadership. If a course is (1) affiliated with a professional organization or conference event, and attendance is expected to be >25 participants, and/or (2) hosted by an institutional or professional organization for the first time and is in a country outside of the United States, NCS requires that the course have at least one member of NCS leadership in attendance as course faculty. Contact us for more information.
