Train the Trainer

The Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum is currently recognized as the best-practice in violence prevention training for health care workers. Because continuing care is recognized as a high-risk sector for violence against staff, it is important to ensure that all staff be given access to violence prevention training.

SafeCare BC and Fraser Health are partnering to increase training for the Violence Prevention Curriculum by offering four-day, train-the-trainer sessions. Following these sessions, participants will be expected to teach their own workshops.

If you have a passion for people, learning, and teaching, we want to hear from you.

Complete the application form and include a letter of support from your employer (see template)and email it to Saleema Dhalla at saleema@safecarebc.ca

Application deadline is Friday, August 25.

 

Train-the-Trainer Workshops

September 19-22
October 24-27

During the application process you can tell us your preferred date, but please note, we may not be able to accommodate all requests.

 

Maintaining Certification

To maintain certification, facilitators must be able to demonstrate their commitment to the program by taking part in at least 40 hours of continuing education over a two-year period, following completion of the train-the-trainer program.

Continuing education hours can be accumulated in the following ways:

  • Facilitating a minimum of four, 8-hour workshops
  • Taking part in training or other professional development (including online or in-person)
  • Delivering peer to peer coaching, safety huddles and new employee orientation, or other types of violence related training

Facilitators will be asked to report on these activities on an annual basis following the train-the-trainer program. As these requirements are met, a SafeCare BC facilitator will issue re-certification.

If you are unsure about the eligibility of your continuing education hours, please contact Saleema Dhalla at saleema@safecarebc.ca

 

Secondment Agreement

SafeCare BC offers a potential secondment agreement for each of our program streams. The purpose of the secondment model is to allow SafeCare BC to expand its capacity and provide support beyond its current reach as well as allow for sharing of information to areas in BC that are outside of the Lower Mainland. It allows the sponsor organization to take advantage of applicable training at no cost, allowing them to train an in-house trainer and provide a customized approach their internal training program.

There are several benefits to organizations that participate in a secondment agreement, including:

  • Subsidized, or no cost, training for the sponsor organization
  • Ability to conduct in-house training which is customized to the sponsor organization’s needs
  • Additional training hours for the trainer to stay current with the content, and in some cases allow for maintenance of training certification
  • Opportunity to access additional training opportunities that may arise through SafeCare BC
  • Ability for employers to access more training locally
  • Extend the geographic reach of current SafeCare BC programs
