Training Procedures

The Instructor Certification Process begins with the completed registration form being received by C-Tech.  Please provide this document as soon as possible to insure a seat in the class that you desire. Training starts at 8:00 am and concludes at 4:00 pm each day.  If you are taking Energy Management or Audio Video those classes are 1.5 days and we transition after lunch. We provide lunch, light snacks coffee, water and soft drinks.  Other than lunch and breaks we will be continually busy but those breaks in training provide you adequate time to check emails and communicate with your facility.

The focus of the training is to familiarize you with the C-Tech training model, course administration, hands-on activities and “Best Practices” that will provide solid strategies in program delivery to your students.  It is suggested that you review the manuals or the CDs prior to training to provide you with a deeper understanding of programs quicker.  We have reference Instructor Manuals and student manuals for your use while you are here.  You may want bring a student manual to mark up with notes as needed.  We will provide you a CD with the training power points and the supporting materials used during your training.

As part of the instructor certification you will be providing a short (10-15 min) presentation on a best practice on how you would deliver one of the program activities.  Instructor training is rich in hands-on and cognitive activities and selecting a presentation topic is easy once you are familiarized with our programs.  Instructor presentations take place on Wednesdays and Fridays.
