What's involved in training to become a facilitator?
Upon your enrollment to a self-paced learning experience, you will be met with a variety of tools to help you through to certification. Included are Master Trainer example videos, six months of access to all tools and resources, ready to use lesson plans, and more! Creating valuable and impactful activities and learning opportunities can often be time consuming and may not be received by your participants or students as you would've hoped. We get that. Which is why we've done it for you! We use our evidence-based program to provide you with easy to download resources and materials that you can plug directly into your daily operations without skipping a beat. Training is all online, accessed through the Healthy Together portal. It is available to you whenever you want to work through it as long as you're enrolled. Don't hesitate to reach out to support if you have any questions along your certification journey!
