PJDC has officially launched its streaming training videos!  We will be building our video library over the next several months, but we have our eight-hour AB703 training video[1] and handouts available now for purchase.  When additional video trainings are added to the library, we will announce them on our listservs. Please note that the video trainings we provide qualify for MCLE participatory credit!

In order to access the streaming video library you need to be a current PJDC member. Click here to sign-up for membership. If you are currently a member, please log in and visit our Resource Bank page to access the videos. Please note that membership is FREE and if you are signing up for membership there may be a slight delay before you can access the video library due to the membership approval process.
