International Training Program
The 2015 International Course was a tremendous success! This was one of our best years ever, with a wonderful group from Indonesia, Philippines, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. See dozens of photos on the 2015 Smug site!
