The COVID-19 pandemic understandably caused much concern and uncertainty in 2020 and 2021. Although many PATH Intl. workshop and certification events were canceled, many events proceeded once the federal, state and local mandates allowed.
Despite it all, 64 different PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center and 57 unique PATH Intl. Faculty/Evaluators provided 79 PATH Intl. workshop and certification events. The centers, event contacts and PATH Intl. Faculty/Evaluators worked quickly and efficiently to make the necessary modifications in order to provide safe and effective PATH Intl. workshop and certification events. The understanding, creativity, agility and grace of these remarkable PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center host sites and those who worked these events demonstrates what is best about PATH Intl. in the certification of individuals to provide equine-assisted services those children and adults who have need.
