This certification is designed for individuals who wish to learn to train others in Teepa Snow's Positive Approach® to Care (PAC) philosophy, providing dementia related awareness, knowledge and skill development in a classroom, community or support group setting.
PAC philosophy and care partnering techniques, including Positive Physical Approach™ and Hand-under-Hand™, serve as the foundation for the PAC Trainer Certification. The classroom training includes an in-depth look into learning styles, the Adult Experiential Learning Cycle (AELC) and the use of effective facilitation techniques. Upon completion of the classroom training, trainees have eight weeks to complete the remaining requirements.
PAC Independent Certified Trainers are licensed to train using the following workshop outlines:
PAC Independent Trainer Certification class size is limited to 25 participants in each location.
Qualifications for registration:
Day One: Positive Care Skills Review and Practice / 8:30am - 5:00pm
You will review and practice care partnering techniques with a PAC Mentor. Techniques include Positive Physical Approach™ and Hand-under-Hand™. Though an intense and interactive process of mentoring and self-review, you will gain the skills necessary to demonstrate and teach others these important care partnering techniques.
Day Two: Effective Training and Facilitation / 8:00am - 5:00pm
Teepa provides an in-depth look into the Adult Experiential Learning Cycle (five step learning cycle) and various learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) to equip the trainer with skills needed to effectively engage adult learners.
Participants work with a PAC Mentor to complete certification. This requires timely follow up and completion of the steps below within an eight-week period.
Learners become certified after successfully completing all training requirements. The individual must demonstrate a solid understanding of training material, PAC care partnering skills, facilitation skills and the ability to actively engage learners. Once certified, the PAC trainer is authorized to use PAC training materials to train others.
A Trainer Agreement and PAC Education License will be made available to independent certified trainers, outlining proper use of provided materials and the necessary requirements to maintain certification year to year.
Note: The trainer certification is intended to supplement trainer knowledge and enhance credibility. It is acknowledgement that the trainer has the experience, knowledge and skills to train others in the PAC philosophy as it relates to dementia.
