become an Authorized PFCA trainer
The PFCA Train the Trainer course is offered in conjunction with all PFCA courses. Attendance is by invitation only and you must have an authorization from an administrator at your agency.
To become a PFCA Trainer, you will first complete the course as a regular student, and then spend an additional day in a rigorous Train-the-Trainer class. Upon successful completion, you will be authorized to facilitate that PFCA course for various organizations in your region. You will have access to curriculum, lesson plans, resources, and tools, and we will assist you in scheduling your classes, finding your venues, and filling up your seats with participants who are ready to learn.
As a community-based resource with a limited operating budget, the PFCA Trainer is a volunteer position. While all costs associated with class material and venues are covered by PFCA, no compensation is offered to authorized trainers. However, your employer may offer compensation when you train PFCA courses. While the PFCA has no influence over your employer's decision, you can check directly with your employer to see if they have a compensation option available to you.
