Demonstrate appropriate level of competency behaviors(personal behaviors) 3. Fulfill their essential duties (Roles & Primary Responsibilities).

  18. Trainer Qualification StandardsHow to Evaluate? Develop-Demonstrate-Qualify Using an Individual Development Plan (IDP) to document: • WHAT needs to be learned? • HOW will they learn it? • How will they DEMONSTRATE competence?

  33. Process For Content Credit Qualification • TnT, together with his/her mentor, creates an individual development plan to acquire content credit knowledge (through a range of possible developmental activities) • Mentors “sign off” on each chapter or specialized topic, once they believe the TnT has demonstrated adequate competence; This then allows the TNT to deliver this content independently. • TnT tracks progress on content credits until he/she has fulfilled a complete Unit of Study • Mentor signs off on fully completed Unit of Study, which qualifies TnT to deliver the Unit independently.

  34. ACTIVITY – Part 1 • Pick ONE or more Unit of Study/Content Credit area that you would like to gain more experience training. • MENTEE: Think about HOW you would DEMONSTRATE your proficiency (knowledge, experience and essence) to qualify in that topic/content area for your Mentor • MENTOR: Think about WHAT IT WOULD TAKE for your MENTEE to DEMONSTRATE his/her proficiency (knowledge, experience and essence) to qualify in that topic/content • Jot down your IDEAS
