Many participants wish to receive official CEUs (Continuing Education Units). As you may know, CEUs are designed to measure participation in learning experiences other than academic courses. As such, these units do not satisfy any requirements toward a degree, but they do provide a permanent record for professional training and enrichment activities.
Colorado State University’s Division of Outreach, located here in Fort Collins, administers and grants CEUs for each of our courses. One CEU represents 10 hours of instruction; our 4-day seminars are worth 3 CEUs each. The fee for 3 CEUs is $50 and payable by check to Colorado State University during the week of your course.
This certificate is awarded to you after the completion of five courses (150 hours) from the Center. We understand this can be a large financial as well as time commitment. Therefore, we place no time limit on the completion of this certificate. It is recommended that you take some time between each course to absorb the information and incorporate it into your work. While some students choose to complete the certificate in around a year, there are others who take 5 or mores years! What is most important is that you work towards this at your pace, and select courses that are applicable to your needs.
You’ll find Dr. Wolfelt’s emphasis on interactive learning to be relaxed and informal. When information is presented in a more traditional lecture format, you’ll be invited to ask questions and help direct the conversation. Our class size allows us this interactive and highly successful approach.
Dr. Wolfelt also speaks in over 60 cities a year around North America. Look here to see if he might be speaking in a city near you.
Tuition for each of our courses is $775. Tuition includes all seminar materials as well as breakfast each day and lunch Monday through Wednesday. Because space is limited, a non-refundable $250 deposit is required to confirm your registration. The tuition balance of $525 is due and non-refundable six weeks before the seminar.

Denver International Airport (DIA) is our closest major airport. Fort Collins is about 1 ¾ hours north of the airport. Most participants choose to use ground shuttle service between the airport and hotel, or you may also choose to rent a car for your stay.
Here are a few shuttle options to choose from:

Our training seminars are each four days long. You will meet other participants in the designated room at the Marriott, where training begins each day at 8:00 am. Breakfast will be served from 7:00-8:00 am, and lunch will be from noon to 1:00 pm.
Monday through Wednesday class will end at 4:00 pm. On Thursday the course graduation will wrap up at 12:00 pm. Many people leave for the airport at that time; therefore, lunch is not provided on Thursday. Participants who are not present at the completion of the course will not receive their course certificate. As such, we suggest a return flight out of Denver International Airport no earlier than 4:00 pm, and additional time is recommended for international departures.
