Train the Trainer Program

Train-the-trainer Program - In development

In addition to open enrollment NVCC sessions, and to ensure we are innovatively meeting your training needs,  NVPCA and High Sierra AHEC are currently developing a train-the-trainer program.

Our Train-the-Trainer program will offer a cost-effective and time conducive alternative to our open enrollment option. Health facilities will  be able to annually license our copyrighted materials and receive direct training from our staff so that cultural competency training can be completed and maintained within their own organization.

We recommend this option for larger facilities with 165 or more employees. 

We will update our website with more information once development on our train-the-trainer program is completed.

Training program (Approx. 1 Month)

Three 3-hour NVCC training sessions (Approx. 9 hours total)

  • Trainees will attend and participate in a standard NVCC training in its entirety, experiencing the training as taught by DHHS/HCQC approved trainers.

Train-the-Trainer Sessions (Approx. 7.5 hours total)

  • Before, in between, and following standard training sessions, program participants will attend Train-the-Trainer meetings to work through the content with the Nevada Cultural Competency instructors, keeping key takeaways in mind for teach-back lessons and practice. Format of the program will include live trainings, group discussions, take-home worksheets, synchronous modules, and Q&A meetings with NVCC Trainers.

  • Train the Trainer trainees will develop their own examples and 'back-pocket knowledge' to ensure relevance to their organization when presenting the training.

  • Trainees will engage in discussions, reflections, and evaluations to ensure understanding of the content of the training, recognize the purpose of cultural competence, and create personal and organizational goals for increasing cultural awareness and sensitivity in their workplace.

  • Trainees will hear from NVCC staff, other program participants, and key speakers.

  • Program materials include standard NVCC workbook, Train-the-Trainer guidebook with note pages, and take-home worksheets to encourage ongoing learning and self-evaluation. 

Trainer Support (as desired)

  • Instructors will hold office hours to provide support to trainees as they work through the program to ensure comfortability with content and material presentation.

Trainer Application

  • Once the training program is complete and the trainer is endorsed by NVCC, trainers will need to complete a trainer application to submit to the DPBH. The training can only be delivered by state-approved trainers. 

  • Once approved, trainers must be compliant and follow NVCC training guidelines. 

 

Trainee Approval Disclosure:

  • Nevada Cultural Competency staff does not guarantee trainee approval by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) post completion of our Train the Trainer program. While our goal is to holistically prepare individuals for presentation of Nevada Cultural Competency training material, High Sierra AHEC, Nevada Primary Care Association, and Nevada Cultural Competency staff are in no way involved in the approval process of potential trainers under NRS 449 legislative requirements.
