Cost for certification: The Train the Facilitator program costs $1,200 per person. Once completed, you will be certified to offer the HOPE 101 training and charge up to $1,500 per training. Certification also comes with the option of being listed on our website as a HOPE facilitator for those looking for local trainers.
Annual recertification: HOPE Facilitator Certification is valid for one year. To maintain your certification and have access to ongoing support, resources, and Office Hours, we do ask all Facilitators to recertify each year. This involves reviewing new material that has been added in the past 12 months, tracking your HOPE workshops on a shared drive, submitting evaluations, and submitting a $150 recertification fee.
Scholarships: There are a limited number of scholarships available on a first come, first served basis for each cohort. If you are either self-employed or working or an organization with an annual operating budget under $250,000 without a staff development budget, please reach out to us. Trainers of color and those living in rural communities are encouraged to apply!
