Steps To Become a Certified Trainer Online
Step 1: If you have filled out the Application and received an email back accepting your application, you have completed Step 1.
If need any assistance during the training process, feel free to contact the Gurian team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 509 624 0623.
Step 2. Purchase and Complete the Minds of Boys and Girls Online Course with Michael Gurian. You can find it on www.gurianinstitute.com’s Products page.
Step 3. Purchase and Complete the Strategies for Teaching Boys and Girls course with Dakota Hoyt. You will find that course on the same www.gurianinstitute.com Products page.
Step 4. Take the test based on the online course that we will send you via email. Request the test at email@example.com.
We suggest the book Boys and Girls Learn Differently as supplemental reading for your training.
Step 5. Upload a short video clip of yourself as presenter in which you present one or more of the strategies/theory points you feel are very important to teach others as a trainer. You can use your phone or other handheld device to shoot this clip and you can upload it to You Tube and send us the link.
Step 6. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a phone conference or Skype meeting, if you wish, with Michael Gurian, in which he can answer any further questions you might have about theory, implementation, contracts or and any other questions.
Step 7. Pay for your certification. The application fee, online course cost, and video costs will be deducted from your fee so that you will only owe the remainder. When you are ready, please write Gail with your request for an invoice and she will send you an invoice from Pay Pal. You will then be able to pay online or you can pay via check sent to the Gurian Institute.
Step 8. Gail will send you the Certified Trainer contract. Please sign and send or scan back to her.
Step 9. Receive Trainer Resource Portal Login codes from Gail so that you can access the Power Points, PDFs, DVDs, DVD clips, guides, articles, tools, and all of the other material you will be able to use as a Certified Trainer.
Step 10. Send your biography and a jpeg photo of yourself to email@example.com for upload onto our certified Trainer site.
Steps to Become a Certified Trainer Onsite
The Steps for Onsite Certification are similar except that the applicant would complete the equivalent of Steps 2 and 3 by participating in one of our Training Institutes, e.g. the Summer Institute.
Trainers are required to meet minimum educational requirements: Certified Trainers must have completed a BA/BS in education, natural or social science, or an area relative to the content being trained, from an accredited college or university.
Application and Training Fees:
If the applicant becomes certified, the initial certification period will be for three years with potential for renewal, with a license fee of $2,000.00 for Independent trainers or $1,000.00 for In-House trainers.
Independent trainers can train anywhere in the U.S. and abroad. In-House trainers provide training within the institution in which they certify.
Trainers may be required to complete additional professional development and deliver a specified minimum number of training hours to maintain certification.
