Active Parenting leaders are serious about parent education.
They have taken the steps necessary to learn the program in depth,
to gain valuable real-life experience leading the program as
designed by the author, and to solicit feedback from the parents
These are the steps to join the elite team
of Certified Active Parenting Leaders:
- Complete a national Active Parenting Leader Training Workshop
or a private workshop conducted by an Active Parenting Certified
- Set up a parenting class. There is no particular number of
parents required. You must use the appropriate Active Parenting
video-and-discussion program kit and facilitate all
the sessions of the program and use the video for the
program. The Video Library or Lunch & Learn format of the program is not
acceptable for certification purposes.
Note: Each participant must have access to a parent's guide for
each session. Photocopying of the parent's guide is strictly
prohibited. If you are using a program that does not have a parent's
guide, please verify with the Training Coordinator that you are
using the appropriate program material for certification.
- At the end of the class, have each parent complete a Parent
Evaulation. Return the Parent Evaluations with your Leader/Parent
Group Summary and Self-Evaluation Form. (Please notify the
Training Coordinator if you need the parent evaluation forms
- You must completely fill out the Leader/Parent Group Summary
and mail it along with the parent evaluations and self-evaluation
back to Active Parenting in the envelope provided. Keep a copy
for your records!
If all requirements and standards are met, a certificate will
be mailed to you 4-6 weeks from the date the packet is received.
