TRAINING

Training is a fundamental strategy for implementing the Standards effectively. Training ensures a thorough and shared understanding of the Standards, builds connections and peer support amongst participants, and motivates teams to work collectively on implementing them.

CERTIFICATION TRAINING

This full-day training is designed for all management and direct service staff, as well as for funders. Teams of Executive Directors, Managers, Coordinators, and Direct Service staff are highly encouraged to attend together, because each has a key role to play in implementing the Standards effectively.

Each individual who completes the training receives a certificate from the National Family Support Network that is valid for 2 years. This training is provided by Certified Standards Trainers from Member Networks of the National Family Support Network and California Network of Family Strengthening Network and by NFSN Staff.  For more information about upcoming trainings, please click here.  

 

Networks, funders, and other stakeholders can also contract with the NFSN to host a Certification Training in their area.  The cost of this unique training for one day for up to 36 participants, including materials and trainer travel within the continental United States, is $7,500 for National Family Support Network Members and $8,000 for non-Members.  The cost to host the Certification Training for two consecutive days for up to 72 participants, including materials and trainer travel within the continental United States, is $12,750 for National Family Support Network Members and $13,250 for non-Members.  The host organization will provide the training venue as well as continental breakfast and lunch for participants.
