Train the Trainer SeriesGet certified to train the 7ei model. By the time you finish all sessions, you’ll have developed a high proficiency in theory and application of TIC in school environments. And you will be certified to train the 7ei model at your school, district or consortium and gain access to the trauma sensitive schools curriculum to train others and create ripple effects of change.
* Trainers will be certified to train the 7ei model at their named entity (facility, agency, school district or consortium) and are only authorized to train individuals employed by this entity. Under no circumstances is the trainee certified to authorize others to train using the 7ei curriculum. Certification will expire two years after training is completed at which time the person must discontinue teaching 7ei until recertified.
