Program Training

Training is required before any organization offers SMRC programs.  Our programs are heavily process-based and cannot be delivered effectively without training.  SMRC offers web-based trainings via Zoom.

Virtual Leader Trainings (for new Leaders)

  • Chronic Disease Self-Management Program
  • Tomando Control de su Salud

Virtual Master Trainings (for new Master Trainers)

  • Master trainings are generic, which means that they are skills-based and applicable to any SMRC program.  Anyone wishing to take master training must be a certified Leader before attending.


Training for our flagship program, the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), or its Spanish counterpart, Tomando Control de su Salud, is required before any training for additional programs. This gives the trainees the foundation for effective process.

  • Tomando Control de su Salud (Spanish CDSMP)
  • Diabetes Self-Management
  • Programa de Manejo Personal de la Diabetes (Spanish DSMP)
  • Chronic Pain Self-Management
  • Cancer: Thriving and Surviving
  • Positive Self-Management (HIV)
  • Building Better Caregivers
  • Workplace Chronic Disease Self-Management

SMRC offers update training when a program is revised.  There are no update trainings at this time.
