Training to Become an Instructor

The Train-the-Trainer program has been developed to offer another option for individuals without the required background to seek approval as an instructor, based on successful completion of a department-approved Train-the-Trainer program.  Individuals who would like to take an approved Train-the-Trainer program can find the contact information under Approved Programs.
