What does the PPI “Train-the-Trainer” process involve?
This is an intense learning experience involving three phases:
- Completion of the PPI Next-Gen Human Performance Leadership (HPI) MasterClass
- Completion of Practicing Perfection® TRAIN-the-TRAINER classroom certification
- Completion of PPI In-House Facilitator Qualification
The web page and Course Catalog indicate that upon successful completion of the training, I’ll be “eligible to qualify”. What does this mean?
Once you complete the PPI TRAIN-the-TRAINER Course, you will be eligible to qualify by observing and then facilitating a live Human Performance BASIC Training™ Course within your organization.
You must facilitate the entire Human Performance BASIC Training™ Course to the satisfaction of your designated PPI Mentor in order to become qualified and receive your license.
What does “Qualification” involve?
It is our intent and mission to help you be as effective as you can possibly be in the classroom. After all, if you’re only marginally effective as a facilitator, you’re only going to see marginal changes in behaviors…and marginal improvements in performance.
We intend for you to be AWESOME. The only way to do so is to evaluate your facilitation of an actual Human Performance BASIC Training™ Course within your organization after you’ve completed TRAIN-the-TRAINER.
This typically occurs in two steps. First, you observe/assist a PPI Master Facilitator in the conduct of a Course. Once you feel you’re ready, you then teach a subsequent Course under the watchful mentorship of your PPI Mentor.
Once you’ve taught the Course to the satisfaction of your PPI Mentor, you will be deemed QUALIFIED. You will receive your PPF designation, and will be granted a two-year license, authorizing you to facilitate the Human Performance BASIC Training™ Course within your organization.
Along with your license, you will be granted access to the PPI In-House Facilitator online reference library with authorization to use the materials within your sponsoring PPI Implementation Client organization as long as your license remains active.
Since our Client organizations tend to be selective about who they send to TRAIN-the-TRAINER, it typically only takes one session of teaching for you to qualify. However, there are no guarantees. If your PPI Mentor feels you need another ‘go’ before you get qualified, then that’s what will happen.
Who should attend PPI TRAIN-the-TRAINER?
If you were to ‘have the talk’ with Tim Autrey in consideration of working with PPI as a PPI Facilitator, he would tell you there two requirements to do so.
First, you must have exceptional facilitation skills.
Second, you must be passionate about wanting to make our world a better and safer place.
Exceptional facilitation skills involve art as much as science. They can, to an extent, be taught, refined, and developed. Over the past 13 years, we’ve seen otherwise shy and inhibited individuals blossom into fantastic Facilitators. They do so because they meet the second requirement at their core- they have passion to make our world a better and safer place.
We strongly suggest these be the folks you send to TRAIN-the-TRAINER- those having the PASSION, the DESIRE, and the ‘FIRE’ to serve and influence.
How long does it take to complete the Course?
The live event, including TRAIN-the-TRAINER, is five days.
Following completion of TRAIN-the-TRAINER, qualification is required to receive become authorized to teach HU Basic Training™. This typically takes two sessions- one to observe a live class taught by a PPI Master Facilitator, and a minimum of another full session in which to facilitate the Course.
What does the PPI License authorize me to do?
Once you have successfully qualified and received your license, you are authorized to facilitate Human Performance BASIC Training™ Courses within your organization for the subsequent two years. There is no limit to the number of Courses you may facilitate during the two-year period.
While you maintain an active license, you will have access to the PPI online library of up-to-date instructional materials and resources associated with Human Performance BASIC Training™. These are the same files used by PPI Master Facilitators when conducting onsite Courses for PPI Client organizations.
Once qualified, the license is good for two years. What happens after that?
Licenses can be renewed for a nominal fee by attending the PPI 5-day live event.
The fee is kept to a minimum; however, we require attendance at a live event because, quite honestly, a LOT changes in a two-year period. Your attendance ensures you are fully aware of the latest developments in Human Performance.
Having previously qualified, there is no requirement for you to re-qualify. Your new two-year license is issued directly upon completion of the live event.
How does PPI TRAIN-the-TRAINER certification fit into a Performance Improvement Implementation Scheme?
Having qualified/licensed Facilitators within your organization can substantially lower the overall cost of implementation.
A typical PPI Implementation Plan often begins with a Culture Profile, followed by work with the Leadership Team. Once Executive / Leadership Team sessions are complete, the Human Performance BASIC Training™ sessions begin.
Depending upon the size of your organization, numerous Human Performance BASIC Training™ sessions may be required. Your ability to conduct these sessions “in house” using qualified/licensed members of your team can create substantial cost savings compared to having PPI Facilitators provide all of the classroom instruction.
Are there Continuing Education Credits (CECs) or Professional Development Hours (PDHs) available for completion of TRAIN-the-TRAINER?
Successful completion of the TRAIN-the-TRAINER curriculum, including successful passing of associated exams (scores of 80% or greater) will result in the award of (30) Professional Development Hours (PDHs) by the Human Performance Association.
How much does it cost?
Standard tuition for completion of all training associated with PPI TRAIN-the-TRAINER is $6500.
Promotional, early-bird, and volume discounts are often available.
Human Performance Association members receive a 10% discount.
Are volume discounts available?
