Indirect Training FAQ

What is an LSU NCBRT/ACE Indirect Trainer?

LSU NCBRT/ACE Indirect Trainers are persons who teach LSU NCBRT/ACE courses to their own agencies after they have successfully completed a Train-the-Trainer course and are approved by LSU NCBRT/ACE. 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 LSU NCBRT/ACE Indirect Course Delivery Program.

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