Instructor Training and Core Program Trainings
We are now accepting applications. Our next annual Kidpower Core Program Training: How to Use the Positive Practice Method to Teach People Safety Skills to Children and Their Adults is January 26-31 2017 and our Teenpower/Fullpower Core Program Training is April 20-25, 2017.
Once you are accepted as a Candidate, you can begin pre-training and preparation activities.
This program is primarily for people who want to become certified as Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International instructors and also for people who want to audit the program to use in their personal and professional lives without becoming certified.
We are always looking for people who are interested in joining our organization! Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International instructors and center directors come from all communities and walks of life. We encourage people to apply as soon as they are ready. After successfully completing our application process, candidates for our certified instructor training program will have coaching and guidance in learning to organize and teach workshops in their community. As part of this process, they will need to come to the six-day Core Program Training. Follow these steps to learn more and apply:
