Upcoming 2022
TRAININGS OF TRAINERS

This year, become a certified TACT2 or TBM Staff Trainer

The most cost-effective way to certify your staff is by training a small team of your most experienced people as TACT2 trainers.  

 

Training of Trainers (ToT).  It requires four very intensive days to be certified as a full TACT2 trainer (two days for verbal skills only).  By the time your candidates complete our ToT, they will have:

(1)  An in-depth understanding of TACT2's trauma-informed content;

(2)  Solid skills in safe physical intervention techniques; and

(3) Significant practice with successful teaching/coaching strategies for both.

 

COVID-19.  Safety first. As of March 1, 2022, attendees at TACT2 Trainings of Trainers (ToT) must be willing to take a rapid antigen self-test (provided) about 30 minutes before the training begins, or submit proof of a similar test within the past 48 hours, regardless of their vaccination status.  For those who test negative, masks will be optional.  Those who test positive (or are clearly symptomatic) will be rescheduled or receive a full refund or credit. Those who choose NOT to test will be unable to join the training (no refund offered). These requirements may change.

More about Training of Trainers

Trainer Prerequisites.  Trainer candidates need not be accomplished public speakers or athletes but should be comfortable in front of peers, have a strong understanding of basic psychology and active listening, and be in reasonably good physical condition.   Prior training in TACT2 or TBM is very helpful, but not required. We strongly recommend a training team of two or more, especially when teaching physical skills, and choosing candidates with at least 2 years in the field.

 

After completing the Training of Trainers with author Dr. Steve Parese or one of his highly qualified Master Trainers, your Staff Trainers will be fully prepared to certify others in Basic TACT2 or TBM. They will have a solid grasp of the program's core content and techniques, more skill in adult-friendly instruction, and the ability to test both verbal and physical competencies.
