ADVANCED CANDIDATE TRAINING (ACT)
Advanced Candidate Training (ACT) is a focused experiential training designed to validate and enhance a candidate’s proficiency in facilitating the Positive Discipline model. The primary goal of the Advanced Training is to explore, improve, and “fine tune” presentation of content and activities, as well as the process of experiential presentation.
All candidates are expected to have developed a strong knowledge of the Positive Discipline curriculum, theory, and facilitation skills prior to beginning Advanced Training, so the training can serve to further develop their skills and deepen their understanding. To strengthen and support this level of competence, the emphasis is on both giving and receiving extensive feedback. The intent is that each candidate develops a clear sense of how to facilitate a quality Positive Discipline workshop.
It is important that candidates understand that Advanced Training does not guarantee that an individual will be recommended for certification as a Trainer. Candidates who are not recommended for certification will receive feedback on areas where additional growth is needed, as well as recommendations on how best to attain this.
If you are uncertain as to whether you are ready to take this important step toward certification, please contact the PDA at email@example.com
Please submit the trainer candidate application by using the following link:
You must include the letter of intent and your photo to complete the application.
5-DAY LIVE ACT TRAINING
A small group of Positive Discipline Trainer Candidates (PDTCs) come together with two or more Lead Trainers to strengthen facilitation skills and knowledge in Positive Discipline theory and practice..
The 5 day in person ACT follows the format of an actual Teaching Parenting or Positive Discipline in the Classroom workshop. Attendees serve in the role of facilitator, modeling best practices in Positive Discipline facilitation. Each Trainer Candidate is responsible for leading one or more “core activities," as well as taking a turn in leading the Parent Helping Parent (or Teacher Helping Teacher) Problem Solving process. Trainer Candidates should be prepared to facilitate any of the core workshop activities.
Participants have numerous opportunities throughout the training for practice. Participants also give and receive feedback. The collaborative group learning experience provides a supportive environment for developing advanced Positive Discipline facilitation skills.
Upon completion of the 5 day Advanced Training, facilitators make a recommendation to the Board of Directors for certification as a Trainer or work with an individual to develop a plan to strengthen depth of understanding and quality practice.
费用和后勤 / FEES AND LOGISTICS
The fees for this Advanced Candidate 5 Day Training can be paid in two installments. PDTCs are responsible for their own transportation and accommodations. It is usually held at or near a hotel offering shuttle service to a local airport.
Advanced Candidate Training is offered annually at a point where it appears that we have twelve Candidates ready and committed to attend.
