Purchasing Curriculum Access

As mentioned above, the curriculum is only available through the Parents Forever™ Facilitator Website. Organizations or independent facilitators can purchase access to this website for $299. This fee covers access to two facilitators from the same organization. Additional access can be purchased for $20/person. These fees are a one-time cost — as long as facilitators remain an “authorized provider” with the program, they will continue to receive access. Website access can be transferred to other “authorized providers” within an organization upon approval by the Parents Forever™ administrative office.

Please note, all facilitators who teach one hour or more of a Parents Forever™ need to purchase access to the Parents Forever™ Facilitator Website. There a number of training pre-requisites that need to be completed in order for a facilitator to be granted “authorized provider” status and to be able to purchase access to the facilitator website and related curricular resources. See Get trained to teach Parents Forever™ for information on those pre-requisites.

If you have additional questions about how this process works, we strongly encourage you to attend the free Parents Forever™ introductory webinar. It reviews the 2014 curriculum revision, changes that have occurred in the Parents Forever™ program, and more. If you have more specific questions, please Contact us.
