How to Become an Instructor

What Is A Certified Instructor?*

                                                                                                                                                                                                                           A  Certified Instructor is someone who has either attended a live or zoom virtual instructor certification training in the course of choice (PICK, LINKS, Home Runs, R&R). These trainings (conducted by Dr. John Van Epp) include both the printed instructor materials and online platform of resources. The trainings provide indepth presentations of each lesson of the course, and simulates the discussion questions, small group activities, and skills-based exercises. Only when someone cannot attend a zoom or live training, then the online option allows that person to purchase the Instructor Certification Packet (ICP) and watched the online Instructor Video Course. The limitation of just watching the online instructor course is the lack of experiencing all of the simulated activities and exercises. After certification, Instructors are able to facilitate the program using the Instructor’s Manuals. 

The Instructor Certification Packet includes: an Instructor Manual, with matching PowerPoint, sample participant workbook, streaming access to the Instructor training course and resources, and a tri-fold RAM chart to use when teaching the course. The Instructor’s Manuals are 100+ page manuals containing suggested group formats, extensive lesson plans with exercises and group activities for each of the sessions, and research and theory sections. The Instructor Certification Packets are required for the certification of all instructors.

The cost of the Instructor Certification Course (ICP) is $399 plus s/h. Please contact for more details. If you are interested in hosting a live instructor training please email To purchase the Instructor Certification courses please follow the links below.
