How to Become a Certified Trainer
CalSAC Apprentice Trainers complete an 8-month certification process where they participate in a three-day intensive Training of Trainers Institute, implement CalSAC's on-site training curriculum to programs in their community, and receive ongoing mentoring from a Senior Certified Trainer.
The Training of Trainers Institute (ToT) is the beginning of the trainer's journey, and is foundational to the CalSAC trainer experience. This multi-day, rigorous professional development experience prepares participants to deliver high-quality training and thrive as members of the CalSAC Trainer Network. Participants leave the ToT equipped with a range of resources, new contacts and a deeper connection to the out-of-school time community.
