The Bombeck Institute updates its online training offerings each January, May and September, with new trainings being introduced each session. Any of our online trainings can apply to Catholic school participants. If requested by at least five participants, the training can be geared specifically for a team from a Catholic school,  parish or archdiocese. We also provide face-to-face professional development for parishes and Catholic schools.
