There are two ways to receive training:
- There are two trainings offered per year at the Domar Center in Waltham. The training is limited to five individuals.
Cost: The cost per trainee is $3000. Traditionally one of the trainees can attend the training virtually but under the current circumstances, up to five can do so. All materials would be shipped to each trainee ahead of time.
- Tailored trainings will be scheduled at the convenience of the individual/group and Dr. Domar. If more than one person is requesting a training, a group training will be encouraged. If training is preferred at the trainee’s center, the cost will be calculated on an individualized basis. International training is available.
