Leader Refresher Training

SMRC offers a Refresher Training curriculum for Leaders of SMRC self-management programs. This training is designed for those Leaders who have been performing well but have not facilitated a workshop within the time required to maintain active status. The refresher training reviews the important processes in the programs (brainstorming, feedback, making an action plan, paraphrasing, etc.).

Leaders may take a Refresher Training facilitated by Master Trainers or T-Trainers locally or, if that is not available, online through SMRC.

What is the format for a web-based training?

Master Trainers and T-Trainers will be asked to view videos and read the training manual, and then submit a form confirming that they did so. This should take about two hours. The orientation webinar will be approximately an hour. After the orientation webinar, Master Trainers and T-Trainers may facilitate virtual or in-person small-group Leader Refresher trainings.

Leader trainees will be asked to complete pre-webinar homework which can take up to 5 hours and attend one real time webinar with up to 12 trainees. Leaders will meet in the webinar session for up to 3 hours.

How do I access the pre-webinar activities?

The training requires that you spend time reviewing training videos and completing training assignments before the webinar. All training activities and videos can be found on the website. After you have registered, you will receive a username and password to access the training site about 2 weeks prior to the webinar. The pre-webinar assignment will be due two business days before the webinar.

How do I access the webinar?

You will receive webinar instructions after your pre-webinar assignment is completed and submitted on the training site. This email attachment will contain the date, time and login you will need to join the session. There is also a webinar instruction form that you can download from the training site.

How do I register for Refresher training?

Dates and the registration link are on the Training Calendar.

What if I know someone else that wants to attend?

To receive credit for attending the training, each person needs to register separately for the training.  Send them the link to the Training Calendar.
