Do I need to go through TCI as a participant before I can attend training to become a TCI trainer?
Applicants to the Train-the-Trainer program must have completed direct TCI training if it is currently implemented at your organisation.
If you are at an agency that does not currently have TCI, please contact the TACT team on: firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 093 715 to discuss how you can be supported.
The TCI Train the Trainer Course is designed to provide a deeper understanding of the content and focuses on participant assessment and training skills as opposed to attending the course as a participant. Many activities are not presented in full and without attending core training as a participant and having previous competence in the material, it is a significant challenge. Attendance alone does not certify a trainer.
How many participants can I train?
TCI Training is designed as a co-trained course for the purposes of skills development and coaching.
For training purposes, the ratio of staff to trainers is 10 to 1. Recommendations are 2 trainers and up to 20 participants. This allows suitable resources for active and passive training roles, participant coaching, feedback, observations and support.
