When you are trained, parents learn and the
community benefits!
Leading parenting groups is a great experience! You're not just helping parents—you're helping children, teachers and your community by strengthening families. We've heard many amazing stories about the positive changes that occur after parents are shown the skills they need to communicate effectively with their children and others.

At a Leader Training Workshop (LTW), we'll show you how to use our programs to make your classes entertaining and filled with practical skills that parents can start using immediately. Plus you'll be able to share ideas with the leader and other parent educators.
At a Leader Training Webinar (WLTW), you can learn how to use our popular video-based programs from the comfort of your own computer. The webinars are live and provide the opportunity to interact with the trainer during the webinar time period.
Study at your own pace with the Online Leader Training Workshop (OLTW). This is a comprehensive, 25- to 30-hour training class complete with video, activities, and discussion. (Time estimate includes reading.) You'll have 60 days to finish the course.
Active Parenting's popular Training of Trainers (TOT) provides three days of vigorous training in our programs to help you expand your professional skills while learning to train new family educators for your organization and community. Featuring training by Dr. Popkin himself!

  How to become a "certified" leader or trainer:
Once you’ve attended the LTW, you can become an Active Parenting certified leader by holding your first complete Active Parenting class and sending us the evaluations from your class, along with your self-evaluation. When all steps are complete, we will certify you as an Active Parenting leader. For a description of the requirements for becoming a Certified Active Parenting Leader, click or contact the Training Coordinator at 800-825-0060 x120 for more information about certification.

Of course, you may continue to hold parenting classes even if you choose not to become certified.
