PSA Train-the-trainer Courses

More courses coming soon!

 

New requirements to becoming a PSA Trainer: 

Effective October 1, 2021, all individuals interested in enrolling in a PSA TTT Course must have attended at least one registered PSA GT Course. Successfully completing an in-person, online, or remote PSA Grower Training Coursemeets this requirement. During the PSA TTT, Trainers-of-Trainers (ToTs) emphasize how to teach the PSA GT Course curriculum, effectively engage participants, and navigate training challenges to ensure a high-quality training, so there is an expectation that attendees already know the curriculum content. PSA team experience, as well as that of other PSA ToTs, indicates that those who have not attended a PSA GT Course prior to attending a PSA TTT Course are not as familiar with the content as they need to be and this may negatively impact their experience in the PSA TTT Course. Participants that have not attended a PSA GT Course prior to the PSA TTT Course will not be eligible for a certificate of completion and will not be PSA Trainers, therefore it is critical that all participants are aware of this prerequisite requirement prior to registering for the course.
