Train the Trainer Registration

Our Train the Trainer Program offers in-depth and personalized instruction in the Sources of Strength curriculum. As Sources of Strength is a highly-effective, evidence-based program, it must maintain its integrity and fidelity through careful selection of Trainers.

Certification Requirements

  • Participate in a four-day Advanced Skills Session Training.
  • Observe at least two school trainings (if possible).
  • Provide at least four mini trainings for colleagues, staff, students, or other local group. 
  • Co-train at least two peer team trainings.
  • Train on his/her own at least two school trainings
  • Commit to providing training in accordance with Sources of Strength protocols in a safe and ethical manner.
  • Provide own transportation.
  • Maintain open communication with the Sources of Strength National team.

If you are from a smaller school system or region that cannot provide six training opportunities in 12 months it may be more cost-effective and reasonable to have one of our national trainers provide the training in your area.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must be age 18 or older.
  • Must have previous training experience.
  • Should not (suggestion) have experienced the loss of a close family member, friend or acquaintance to suicide within the last two years
