On January 16th 2014, I hung up the phone feeling defeated after talking to an HHS Director from a rural Alaskan fishing village. His passion and determination for delivering our message to transform the youth in his community was strong; however, the logistics of the travel accommodations, including 2 puddle jumper plane flights from Denver, made the mission feel impossible. Our staff came together with a dream to remove these barriers and saw our dream realized this Spring.
The Center for Relationship Education is excited to announce the REAL Essentials Online Training. The train the trainer model of credentialing helps CRE reach close to 1,000,000 students annually with skills for living, loving, and leading well. Prior to our online training option, many educators felt stifled by the barrier of time and travel previously required for curriculum implementation. Now, people can learn at any time on any device. Online training also allows people to work at their own pace and on their own time toward attaining the credentials required to teach these invaluable tools.
Who should register for the online training: Any teachers, parents, coaches, or youth serving personnel who want to prepare young adults with necessary tools to establish healthy relationships and the foundational skills for developing future healthy families.
What to expect from the online training?: CRE’s President and Founder will unpack the history and legacy of the organization while also informing educators of the important health implications of this message. Additionally, you will unpack 8 of the foundational REAL Essentials units and get to watch some of the impact with footage from an actual classroom.
When should I take the online training?: As soon as you register for this training online, you’ll receive a login code and can begin the training as early as you would like to start. The entire training takes between 4-6 hours to complete.
Where can I find the training?: Click here to visit the course page.
Why should you choose online training?: Live training is still recommended whenever possible and is required for certification; however, we understand it is difficult for some to find the time and the money to invest in the travel expenses necessary for out-of-state accommodations. The online training option is an affordable way to learn the course framework needed to teach REAL Essentials while working at a pace and in a timeline that offers flexibility.
What if I’ve been certified prior to the online training?
REAL Essentials online training is specifically designed to introduce REAL Essentials to a new audience of educators. If previously trained, the online training is a great refresher tool and a resource to reference if questions arise post your training experience. The content will be familiar to those previously trained with some fresh updates and a few new units featured.
