Get Trained to Teach Parents Forever™

All facilitators who teach one hour or more of a Parents Forever™ class are required to complete our training series. Our facilitator trainings help ensure that local programs meet all 25 minimum standards required for divorce education classes in Minnesota. They also help ensure that in-person programs are delivered consistently, and with the highest quality, no matter where they are offered.

Here are the steps you need to complete to be trained to teach Parents Forever™:

  1. Familiarize yourself with How to Offer Parents Forever™ In-Person to Your Community.
  2. Register and attend the Parents Forever™ Introductory Webinar. This free one-hour webinar is scheduled at least monthly.
  3. Register and attend the Parents Forever™ Facilitator Training. This six-hour training is $25 and is scheduled in-person at select locations in Minnesota this summer and fall. We are working on an online version of this training for our out-of-state partners. We hope to have this version available Fall 2015.

After you complete the training and an agreement to offer the program has been signed, you will be able to purchase access to the Parents Forever™ Facilitator Website. This website is the gateway for facilitators to access the updated curriculum, and additional resources, training, and support that you will need for starting and maintaining a Parents Forever™ program in your community.

You would then be approved as an “authorized provider” of Parents Forever™ and would have our permission and support to teach the program in-person to your community.
