Training FAQs

Do I have to work for a member agency of Daily Bread to attend training?
Although our mandate is to provide training for staff and volunteers of Daily Bread’s member agencies, we happily accept individuals from partner agencies (i.e. Second Harvest and North York Harvest members) as well. However, priority booking is given to member agencies of Daily Bread.

I need Nonviolent Crisis Intervention certification; can I get it from Daily Bread?
Daily Bread staff are certified to train Nonviolent Crisis Intervention through the Crisis Prevention Institute. Due to CPI restrictions, a Daily Bread trainer can offer Nonviolent Crisis Intervention or Trauma-Informed Care training only to staff and volunteers from Daily Bread and North York Harvest member agencies.

If I can’t attend a course I have registered for, what do I do?
You can cancel your registration with seven (7) business days’ notice at no cost. Cancelling less than seven (7) business days before your course will result in being charged the full fee.

What happens if I miss a course I registered for?
If you register for a course and do not cancel seven business days before, you will be charged the full fee. If there are special circumstances, you can email to ask for the workshop fee to be waived. We cannot guarantee that fees will be waived and all decisions are final.

If I am running late for a workshop, what do I do?
Being on time is very important! If you arrive later than one hour past the scheduled start time of the session you may not be issued a certificate and/or you may be refused admittance.
