Active Parenting Training Opportunities

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 Active Parenting Publishers, we provide many opportunities to train to be a more effective facilitator through our Leader Training Workshops. You can also step up and learn how to train other facilitators at the Training of Trainers seminars. See below for information about all the training options.

How to become a certified leader or trainer

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.
