In order to attend the Train-the-Trainer Course, learners must have completed the online Awareness Module (4 hours) and the in-person Operations Module (4 hours). 

The Train-the-Trainer Course (6 hours) is a blended course made up of 2 hours of online instruction and 4 hours of in-person practice teaching and coaching with expert feedback. The goal of the Train-the-Trainer course is to prepare individuals to facilitate Awareness and Operations level courses at their own institution.

Learners must be prepared to teach the role of the Donning/Doffing Expert (DE) in the in-person component of the Train-the-Trainer course.  The rubric that will be used to provide feedback on their teaching of this role will also be emailed to them after completion of the online modules.
