Intensive Workshops are designed to go more in depth into a topic of discussion and are worth three credits towards your Meals on Wheels Leadership Academy Certificate.

Institutes go one step further than Intensive Workshops and are worth four credits towards your Meals on Wheels Leadership Academy Certificate when you attend all sessions involved.
