ETR’s Training of Trainers (TOT) is a high-level professional learning process for qualified trainers who will be providing training and capacity-building assistance for evidence-based program (EBP) implementation.
Were you looking for ETR's Training of Educators (TOE)? Our TOE is for educators and/or facilitators who are looking to be trained to implement one of ETR's evidence-based programs with youth.
Our Training of Trainers (TOT) is training for adults who plan to deliver their own TOE to train educators on how to implement their ETR evidence-based programs with youth. At this time, due to COVID-19 ETR is not scheduling any in-person trainings. If you'd like to be notified when TOT's resume, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The TOT engages participants in a comprehensive, multi-day distributive learning process that builds the knowledge and skills required to effectively train educators to deliver evidence-based HIV, STD and/or pregnancy prevention programs for adolescents.
This rigorous 4-day workshop includes advanced training on the science of learning, intensive coaching on effective strategies for engaging adult learners, and targeted instruction and practice in training others to deliver a specific curriculum.
“I recently completed my first Training of Trainers with ETR. It was an incredibly well designed and thoughtful process, with emphasis on the ETR Distributive Learning Approach. The pre-assessment and pre-work had us prepared to “dig in” to the training materials and allowed the participants to make the most out of the time we had together to build our skills as trainers. I look forward to the continued support from ETR as we implement our first training of educators.”
