Building a Dementia-Competent Nursing Home Workforce with Positive Approach® to Care will provide an opportunity for 60 current PAC Certified Independent Trainers and Coaches to enroll in the Advanced PAC Trainer-Coach Course. The PAC Advanced Trainer-Coach Course certification is the next step in your PAC training journey and will truly elevate your skills and knowledge.
In addition to current certified trainers and coaches, this course also welcomes those who have attended a PAC certification course and have yet to be certified and those who have certifications that are not current.
Upon completion of the PAC Advanced Trainer-Coach certification, participants will have access to additional resources from the PAC materials for their own use. The course, taught by Teepa Snow and her team, focuses on enhancing certified Trainers’ and Coaches’ own dementia care techniques and ability to grow as educators. This means you will be able to take your trainings and coaching sessions beyond the content in Workshops A, B, and C to provide your learners with exciting new experiences!
Participants attend the two-day session at no cost as a result of funding from the Indiana State Department of Health (transportation costs not covered).
