Registration Information

Tucked up agains the Colorado Rocky Mountains’ eastern foothills, Fort Collins is a delightful mid-sized city full of wonderful hiking trails, restaurants, shops, and, for beer lovers, craft breweries. You will have evenings to spend as you choose and many participants plan their evenings out together as groups.

Rocky Mountain National Park is just an hour’s drive away. You are eligible for discounted lodging through Thursday night of your course, so you may want to consider a visit as part of your Colorado experience!

Your discounted lodging is good through Thursday night, so you might want to consider a visit to the Sonoran Desert, or a day exploring the city of Phoenix to close-off your experience!





The Center for Loss provides you with a certificate of completion at the end of your class. This is sufficient for the continuing education requirements of many professional associations.

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.

Stay in touch with us through our email list! You may sign up using the link found on the bottom left corner of this page.

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.

Please call us if you would like more information about our training courses. We can be reached at (970) 226-6050, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Mountain time. You may also email us at

Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (PHX) is the nearest airport to the Scottsdale trainings. The SuperShuttle will be the best transportation option for this location.

Training Schedule

Our training seminars are each four days long. You will meet other participants in the designated room at the hotel, 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.

On Monday through Wednesday class will end at 3:45 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 or Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport no earlier than 4:00 pm, and additional time is recommended for international departures.
