We have found that our current program with these months of training, has been the most effective way to help the student and meet their needs. PHASE 1 ? ORIENTATION: The orientation phase is a minimum of 3 months. This includes a probationary period of one month for the student to adjust to the residential and structured nature of the program. This is a trial period and at the end of these 30 days, there will be an evaluation by the Program Department as to your progress. A decision will be made at this time whether you will proceed. PHASE 2 ?
