What happens after the T4T for Alberta Trainers?
After the T4T your employee will be a Provisional Trainer. Once successfully completing 2 mentored workshop (3 if deemed necessary by their Mentor) and 1 workshop independently in the year after the training, they will become a Full Status Trainer with CSP. In order to maintain their certification, they will need to facilitate a minimum of 2 workshops per year.
In their first 2 workshops, their Mentor will support them throughout the workshop and provide feedback. Your employee will facilitate the workshop alongside a Full Status co-Trainer (not a Provisional Trainer).
Their third workshop will be facilitated with a Full Status co-Trainer or another Provisional Trainer who has also completed their first 2 mentored workshops.
All Trainers, regardless of their employer, sign a Trainer Agreement (contract) with CSP. This Agreement, and corresponding Trainer Certificate, formalize the relationship between Trainers and CSP. Trainers take this certificate with them should they change employers. In light of this, some sponsoring organizations choose to broker an Agreement of Commitment with their employee so that conditions of repayment are understood should they terminate their employment. This is not required by CSP, it is a completely optional contract between your organization and your employee.
If you are not accepted into the program, or if you cancel on or before the application deadline, any
payments made will be returned less the $500 deposit. No refunds will be offered after the deadline.
CSP reserves the right to cancel the T4T, in which case all fees will be fully reimbursed
Some useful definitions
- Full Status Trainer designation upon successful completion of T4T, mentorship, and required workshops.
- Mentors are Full Trainers who take on the role of mentoring Provisional Trainers.
- Provisional Trainer Status is the designation given upon completion of T4T prior to attaining Full Trainer Status.
- System Trainers vs Community Trainers: System Trainers facilitate workshops internally for their own organization. Community Trainers facilitate workshops independently, outside of their organization.
All Provisional Trainers in Alberta will be assigned to work with a Mentor.
A Mentor’s role is to:
- help the Provisional Trainer prepare for their first workshop;
- help the Provisional Trainer apply the content;
- support the Provisional Trainer in-person, via phone, and/or video conferencing;
- provide an opportunity to practice the delivery of certain sections of the workshop;
- provide feedback and recommendations; and
- submit an evaluation of the Provisional Trainer to CSP.
The mentorship program is designed to help Provisional Trainers apply the knowledge they gain in the T4T classroom.
The mentorship program is designed to help Provisional Trainers to apply the knowledge they gain in the T4T classroom. Typically, a Provisional Trainer completes 2 mentored workshops before facilitating a workshop independently. In unusual circumstances, a Mentor may recommend that a Provisional Trainer take more time preparing before delivering the workshop, or recommend further mentorship. In very rare and extenuating circumstances, it may be recommended that a Provisional Trainer discontinue with the program. Should this happen, CSP will review the matter thoroughly and make a decision based on their review. Any further costs associated with the recommendations will be the responsibility of the Provisional Trainer.
