Five Steps to Become a Certified Credit Union Training Professional
Step 1: Train the Trainer Boot Camp
Train the Trainer Boot Camp is the starting point for any trainer who wants to be empowered with the confidence, skills, and tools to be an exceptional trainer! This four-day workshop is built around the A-E Professional Development Model and is your first step towards certification.
Train the Trainer Boot Camp takes place in Houston, TX and is typically offered in the spring and fall. Check for upcoming dates here.
Step 2: A-E Professional Development Assignment
This assignment will help you deepen your understanding of the A-E Professional Development Model.
The goal of this assignment is to reinforce the principles of the A-E Professional Development Model and show us how you would apply the model in your workplace. To do so, you will be given a fictitious scenario in which you welcome a new trainer to your credit union. It’s up to you to help them be successful by assessing their strengths and weaknesses, introducing them to the A-E Professional Development Model, and evaluating their first days on the job.
Candidates typically spend 10-15 hours to complete the A-E Assignment successfully. The assignment is submitted online. No travel is required.
Step 3: Train the Trainer Advanced Week
Train the Trainer Advanced Week represents the next level of training and learning
The focus of Advanced Week is to teach methods and techniques that impact the quality of your training delivery and lift the experience for participants to new heights. You will learn how to create a leader’s guide for training programs you develop and learn how to make your presentations and manuals stand out.
Train the Trainer Advanced Week takes place in Houston, TX and is typically offered in the spring and fall. Find a date now.
Step 4: Certification Exam
The certification exam will confirm the knowledge and expertise you have gained on your journey to certification. The exam is designed to test what you have learned during Train the Trainer Boot Camp, your A-E Professional Development Assignment, and Train the Trainer Advanced Week. The 100 question exam is designed to confirm your expertise as a stand-out trainer.
You will be tested on your understanding of the A-E Professional Development Model and alternative training methods. The exam also tests your knowledge of Peer Assisted Learning, your insights in visual design and your ability to create leader’s guides.
You can take the exam from your home or office. No travel is required. The exam is typically completed in 90 minutes.
Step 5: Submit a Training Program
It’s the end of your journey and time to proudly show what you’ve accomplished. Your final program submission will be a real-life project you selected. This training program must demonstrate your knowledge of the A-E Professional Development Model and illustrate how you put your knowledge of the model into action. Your work must also include a leader’s guide and adhere to the principles and best practices that you learned during Train the Trainer Advanced Week. Your work will be reviewed by a panel of experts in the field of training.
