January 2017 – November 2017
The Validation Training Institute has developed a combined Internet-based and 2 live in-person weekend sessions in a Level 1 Worker Course. We hope that this course will enable people who are highly motivated but who live at great distances from Centers to become Validation Practitioners.
Rationale: Many people interested in being trained as a Validation Worker/Practitioner face barriers to participating in a course. Barriers include the distance to a training site and subsequent cost and time incurred with travel. This proposal for a Validation Worker Tele-course would modify the requirements to minimize these barriers.
Format: The course will be a combination of tele-education using the computer, 2 weekend in-person sessions, and weekly practicum. Each week, students will be expected to spend approximately (a) 1 hour in practicum working with a disoriented elderly person, (b) 2 hours on the computer (c) or some combination of these 2 elements not to exceed 2 hours per week. Each practicum session should be video recorded in a digital format for potential review by the instructor and/or peers. For computer-based learning, students will either (a) participate in a live webinar, (b) review pre-recorded presentations (c) review peers practicum video and upload their own video and/or (4) read from required text. Course syllabus (currently being updated weekly).
Live Interactive Webinars: 2nd and 4th Monday, 7-8:15 pm PT (8-9:15 pm MT and 9-10:15 pm CT), January 2 – November 25, 2017.
Teachers: Eric Portnoff, CVT and Stacey Hand, CVP
Cost: $1000 tuition plus $250 technology fee
