Statewide Trainer Qualifications Document

In February 2023, the first version of the Statewide Trainer Qualifications document became available for distribution and use.

In September 2023, the Statewide Trainer Qualifications document was updated as part of the bi-annual revision process. This version reflects Trainer requirements for newly created statewide standardized continuing training courses, including the California Family First Prevention Services Series, as well as updates to the Common Core trainer qualifications. 

A suggested distribution method would be for the training system partners to post these qualifications on their respective websites with communication about trainer recruitment.

CalSWEC will be adding this document to the CACWT Trainer Resource Community, as another access point.

These qualifications will be updated bi-annually (January and July), in collaboration with the statewide Directors and Champions workgroup.
