What kind of training is required to be a Master Trainer?

A Master Trainer has attended a 4 ½ day training and learned skills in workshop activities and training activities. Master Trainers can both lead or facilitate BCBH workshops and train Lay Leaders to lead BCBH workshops.

  • Workshop activities are identical to the activities taught to people with chronic conditions when programs are offered to the community. Trainees experience the activities just as workshop participants would when they attend workshop sessions in their communities.
  • Training activities are designed to review and discuss the workshop activities. During training activities, trainees ask questions and learn about training, implementation, and administration of the program.
