How do I apply for a Trainer Certification Course?
The Blended Learning Trainer Certification Course (BL TCC) is a training option for individuals interested in becoming a certified Olweus Bullying Prevention Program Trainer-Consultant. The course provides the same content in the same number of training hours but allows participants the opportunity to learn in part through digital and online media with an element of control over time, place, path, and pace. The Blended Learning Course includes 13 hours of asynchronous and independent study, 5.5 hours of synchronous learning, and 16 hours of face-to-face training all completed over a 15 month time period.
