NATMI has finalized plans for the summer 2019 instructor Train-the-Trainer program. All prospective instructors wishing to teach NATMI courses, who have not attended a previous train-the-trainer program, must attend the upcoming program, which is scheduled on Thursday, July 25th and Friday, July 26th (the program will end by 2pm on Friday).
This year's program will be held in Denver, Colorado at the NATMI headquarters office building. The 2-day program covers NATMI's goals and expectations for instructors, background on our nationally-recognized certification programs, as well as how to effectively instruct NATMI courses.
Attending the course does not guarantee that a participant will be eligible to teach NATMI courses. Each participant must present a 3-minute overview, as well as a 15-minute module and be evaluated by their peers and NATMI representatives leading the program. Based on the quality of the presentations, NATMI will determine whether a participant is ready to teach. Only those approved following the train-the-trainer course will become NATMI instructors.
The program content is roughly equivalent to the Essential Instructional Skills for Professional Driver Trainers course, which is required for the NATMI Certified Driver Trainer (CDT) designation. For this reason, those attending the program can use the course to fulfill the training requirement for the CDT program, though the remaining steps for certification must be completed (i.e., the certification exam and online submission of candidate experience).
There are no fees to attend the course, but attendees are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses. NATMI covers the cost of course materials.
