Pronto Seminars

Continuing Education Set in Italy

About Pronto Seminars

Pronto Seminars is a small business that organizes and hosts continuing education (CE and CME) programs in Italy. Pronto has successfully produced 23 seminars throughout Italy since its inception in 2007.

Participants and their families come from all over the world to enjoy high quality experiential content at a relaxed pace. We provide an affordable way to combine professional development, travel and relaxation.

Our classes are small and designed so that afternoons and evenings are free for wandering through the countryside, eating wonderful meals, or enjoying museum visits. Our participants tell us that learning in this relaxed environment allows for a full integration of new material and practices.

We are known for creating an intimate setting where distinguished presenters are available in a less formal way and where colleagues from many different countries become friends and get to know each other while enjoying the delights of Italy. This model provides an alternative to large conferences and online courses, and our participants have encouraged us to continue in this direction.

While we have participants from around the world, English is the language of our workshops. Space is limited.
