WHAT IS A WORKSHOP?

Workshops (formerly “Intensives”) are live, in-person training events held for several days at the FTLF Training Center in our Washington, D.C. office. We try to limit our workshops to a small group size to allow for maximum participation and personal attention.

WHERE IS THE TRAINING?

Unless otherwise noted on the Venue tab of your Course page, all of our Workshops are held in our Training Center located in the FTLF office:  

1129 20th Street NW
Suite 300 
Washington, DC 20036

CAN I ATTEND ONLINE?

No. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a remote attendance option for workshops or other in-person trainings, though we are looking into simulcast capabilities for the future.  

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I REGISTERED UNDER THE WRONG ACCOUNT?

If you registered for a training under a colleague’s name (or registered a colleague under your name), and are not the individual who will be participating in the training, please Email Us the following information for the correct registrant(s):

  • First and Last Name
  • Title
  • Organization
  • Email address

I HAVE A SPECIAL ACCOMMODATION, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Please let us know as soon as possible if you have any dietary restrictions, accessibility needs, or require any other special accommodations. We ask for at least three business days’ notice of any specific requests prior to the training; otherwise, we cannot guarantee full accommodation, though we will make best efforts. 

DO YOU HAVE ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HOTELS?

Yes. We have negotiated special rates with several nearby hotels and have provided a larger list of hotels within walking distance of our office. You can find this list under the Venue tab on the Course page for your training.

WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?

We ask that you dress in business casual attire for our trainings. As the room temperature can fluctuate, we recommend you bring layers.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

We provide course materials, pens, highlighters, and post-it flags. You may wish to bring a laptop or tablet to take notes. We also recommend bringing business cards for networking with our attorneys and other attendees.

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?

Our programs begin at 9am ET unless otherwise noted on the course page. Registration and Continental Breakfast are available beginning at 8:30 am. Please do not arrive early: our building security will not permit guest access before this time. Upon arrival, proceed to the lobby desk to check in with security. After 8:30am, security will escort you to the elevator and buzz you up to our 3rd floor Training Center.
