The choice of most organizations and facilities is to have an ACT Certified Instructor™ on staff.
Having a staff member certified as an ACT Instructor™ provides the necessary on-site resources to develop and sustain an effective violence prevention and response program.
The ACT Cert Instructor™ certification program is comprised of a 3 day Hands On Training and the oline learning course and examination.
In addition to reviewing the material covered in the ACT Cert Professional Series™, instructor course participants are taught how to implement the ACT Cert™ program recommendations to the needs of their organization. They also learn effective teaching techniques as well as training drill safety. The use of the workbook and the administration of pre and post exams are also covered.
One of the main objectives of the instructor certification course is to connect training with exercises. Only those that successfully complete the Online Learning and Hands On Training become ACT Cert Instructor Certified.
Personalized attention is given to the course participants helping them gain confidence in their teaching ability.
The ACT Cert Instructor Series™ courses are scheduled on a quarterly basis at various locations.
Please check periodically for instructor certification course schedule announcements.
