The VCPI Family

Just like the old adage says… “It’s the people that make the difference.” It’s true. It’s especially true at VCPI. Since 1997, VCPI and those we have served, have benefited from the most professional, talented, energetic, and passionate team imaginable.

The shared commitment and vision at VCPI is so strong that we don’t often use the word Staff in referring to ourselves. Instead, you’ll find us referring to ourselves as a VCPI Family. It’s a much better description of us and it also helps describe the close relationships we’ve developed over the years with our partners, our participants, and our instructors… the extended VCPI Family.
