Parent educators and their supervisors wishing to become certified to provide Parents as Teachers services attend Foundational and Model Implementation Training. Foundational Training (Link to Foundational Training Page) is a three-day course where affiliate staff learn how to use the Foundational Curriculum effectively in their work to partner, facilitate, and reflect. Model Implementation is a two-day training and is usually completed immediately following and building on Foundational Training.

Foundational and Model Implementation Training ties together the Foundational Curriculum with the Parents as Teachers Essential Requirements , guidelines, and standards that together prepare affiliates to provide high quality, evidence-based services with fidelity. Our expert trainers emphasize reflective practice and provide real-world examples and hands-on activities emphasizing the Parents as Teachers approach to working with families.

Model Implementation Training is only offered to Parents as Teachers affiliate staff. Programs interested in learning more about implementing a Parents as Teachers affiliate should contact their Technical Assistance Provider.
