Advanced and Instructor Excellence Renewal Courses


The Instructor Excellence Renewal Process: Ongoing Training and Practical Testing


As a component of the Instructor Excellence Renewal Process, once every four years Certified Instructors are required to attend and complete a qualifying Instructor Excellence Renewal Course, which includes both written and physical competency testing.


We believe that this renewal process will benefit you as a Certified Instructor, as well as those you teach. Most importantly, it will strengthen your facility's ability to provide for the Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM of the individuals in your care.
Instructors may choose any one of the following options:
