Continuing Education and Professional Development

GameTime is pleased to offer continuing education to professionals interested in various topics surrounding play. Through PlayCore’s Center for Professional Development, our certified and master trainers assist communities in advancing the quality of play and recreation spaces through sharing research, best practices, and educational programs.

GameTime partners with various agencies, schools, associations, and organizations to host training symposiums, lunch-and-learn sessions, and annual conferences at no cost to hundreds of people each year.
