Our LivingWorks Training for Trainers (T4T) courses prepare people to become LivingWorks trainers and offer our face-to-face programs in their communities, workplaces, and beyond.
LivingWorks T4T is a powerful, hands-on learning experience. Supported by expert LivingWorks coaches, you'll learn to make a major impact and train many others to save lives from suicide.
What is the process for becoming a LivingWorks trainer?
First, you must successfully complete the LivingWorks T4T course. You'll then become a provisional trainer with certain requirements to graduate to full registered trainer status. These include presenting three workshops within a year of your LivingWorks T4T and working with an experienced trainer to develop your skills. Once you're registered, you must continue to uphold LivingWorks' quality training standards and stay current by presenting a minimum number of workshops annually. LivingWorks is here to guide and support you throughout this process!
Can I incorporate training into my career?
Many people become trainers at the request of their employers so that they can provide training for their colleagues at work. Others offer training on their own time as a full- or part-time career. How you choose to bring training to your community is up to you, and LivingWorks will provide you with guidance and support to help you achieve a life-saving impact.
What type of person makes a good trainer?
LivingWorks trainers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences, and no single "type" is predisposed to success. However, good qualities include presentation and facilitation skills, patience, a willingness to talk about suicide, and an "always learning" mindset.
