A la Carte Training


Special Kids Photography training may be purchased as a stand-alone item. This form of the training may be available at some in-person 1-day workshops and is also available as a CD in our store. It includes the exact training points that are part of the SKPA Accreditation Workshop package. However, it DOES NOT include books, test, photo submission and review process or other benefits that are part of the entire package. However, never fear; the other components may be purchased later. Fear now. If purchased later, the cost may be higher. 

Special Kids Photography of America offers in-person workshop training as well as the same information on CD. Completion of the 1-day workshop or thorough study of the workshop CD is the first step of the accreditation process. A la Carte training includes the same learning objectives as the in-person workshop.
