The first bi-lingual CPSP event, National Clinical Training Seminar-Central, was held January 14–15, in San Antonio, Texas. At this historical event, forty-five attendees, consisting of members of CPSP, non-members and seminarians joined together for a group relations seminar, case studies, and to listen to guest speaker and CPSP General Secretary, Raymond Lawrence. 

"Over 40 participants, from the United States and Puerto Rico, attended this history-making event," CPSP Diplomate, Juan Loya, stated in a recent letter, "In their evaluations, the overwhelming majority of participants highly praised this training event. As a participant and as the Convener of the Alamo Chapter, I concur with their astute observations."

The principal organizer for this event was Patty Berron, a member of the CPSP Certification Committee. Patty worked with members of the local chapters to facilitate the event, including the scheduling of fifteen certification candidates, and nine panel members, for a certification review panel on January 13. The candidates approved for certification will receive their certificates at the 2017 Plenary, on March 21, in Orlando, Florida. 

"This was the first Spanish-English bi-lingual NCTS we've done and it was very well organized by Patty Berron. It seemed to be a success from my observation and reports I have received ," stated Raymond Lawrence. 

Plans are in the works for a second NCTS-Central event, to be held in the near future.
