Train-the-trainer Program


Our Train-the-Trainer Program Has Been Updated! 

We're happy to announce that we have enhanced the accessibility of our program! Our program's live components are accessible online! Train-the-Trainer participants have 60 days to complete our program from their registration date!


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

We recommend this option for facilities with 60 or more employees.

Training program (Approx. 1 Month)

Two 4.5 - 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 Modules 

  • The Train-the-Trainer Program integrates interactive activities and downloadable worksheets and provides key takeaways for teach-back lessons and practice. The program's format includes participation in our standard live training, group discussion boards, fillable worksheets, community video modules, and Q&A sessions 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 discussion boards, 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.

  • Training participants can engage with NVCC staff during our monthly Q&A session! Additionally, trainees will be able to discuss the content with other program participants throughout the program.

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

Community Modules

  • Program participants will hear from community experts on topics related to organizational cultural competency including: 

    • The Truckee Meadows Community College Equity, Inclusion, and Sustainability Office​

    • United Way of Northern Nevada & The Sierra

    • Tiffany Young Consulting

Trainer Application

  • Once the training program is complete, 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) after completing the Train the Trainer program. While our goal is to holistically prepare individuals for the presentation of Nevada Cultural Competency training material, High Sierra AHEC, Nevada Primary Care Association, and Nevada Cultural Competency staff are not involved in aby of the approval process of potential trainers under NRS 449.103 legislative requirements.
