Training is a major component of OneStory. Most workshops (with the exception of the Step Into The Story seminar) are offered as a part of the full OneStory Project training & consulting cycle.

Step Into the Story, Share the Story, the Introductory Workshop, and Utilization Training are relevant as stand alone workshops that are beneficial for various types of workers, not just those doing OneStory projects.
