PCTI Annual Schedule/Locations

The PCTI is presented in multiple formats. At least two times per year, it is presented one day per week for 9-weeks.  Additional PCTIs may be in the nine week format, or may meet for shorter sessions more frequently. In addition, at least once a year, it is offered in a one-week condensed,  intensive format. The PCTI is offered in our Boston office as well as in various locations throughout Massachusetts. Locations can vary from one year to the next and are established over the summer for the upcoming school year.
