Indirect Training

Indirect Course Delivery Program

NCBRT delivers select courses in Train-the-Trainer format to train instructors/trainers in academies, agencies or departments who are seeking to train participants by teaching the Indirect delivery version of these courses. After completing the Train-the-Trainer class, participants are eligible to instruct the Indirect delivery version of the course using class materials provided by NCBRT, at no direct cost.

The Indirect delivery version of these courses are commonly delivered as part of the in-service or academy training to support continuing education.


Indirect Training FAQ


What is an NCBRT Indirect Trainer?

NCBRT Indirect Trainers are persons who teach NCBRT courses to their own agencies after they have successfully completed a Train-the-Trainer course and are approved by NCBRT. Participants of the Train-the-Trainer class are taught the course material as well as teaching techniques and given in-depth resources for training the adult learner.

Upon successful completion of a Train-the-Trainer class, participants receive Continuing Education Units (CEU) and are eligible to apply for trainer status in NCBRT Indirect Course Delivery Program.

Trainers are not paid by NCBRT to teach a class; however, NCBRT provides all the training materials necessary to conduct the training.
