To become a certified to teach a CCAA leadership training course or workshop, the following criteria must be met within one year of the completion date of your course:
Complete and acheive a grade of 80% or better on 16 assignments on a variety of topics prior to the in-class portion of the Trainer course. These assignments must be submitted 2 weeks prior to the trainer course start date.
Attend the 2-day Train the Trainer course. This course covers a variety of topics related to training and educating adult learners.
First Aid is also recommended, but not required for trainer certification.
Observe and practice facilitating by co-teaching a course with an experienced certified CCAA trainer within the first year of completing the Train the Trainer course.
Keep observation of lessons to a minimum throughout your co-facilitation experiance. During your apprenticeship, teach 1-2 lessons early in the course then increase to approximately half of the teaching by the end of training.
Your teaching skills will be evaluated throughout your co-facilitation experience by the trainer with whom you are leading the course.
You must deliver two other courses within the first year of certification and one course every year thereafter to maintain your certification. Visit the Trainer Renewal page for complete renewal requirement details.
Remember to download, print and sign the trainer/facilitator agreement signature page. Return one copy to the CCAA along with your certification paperwork and keep the other for your records.
Please send all original certification documentation to the CCAA.
Your certified certificate will be available in your CCAA account after the paperwork is reviewed and approved by the CCAA administrator.
