NATAB Proposals for Associate Trainer, Trainer, & Educational Director Policy Change

April 4, 2017

NATAB requested feedback on the proposed Associate Trainer, Trainer Certification, and Educational Director policy changes. 

The proposals would:

  • Create new Associate Trainer policy, replacing “Trainer Candidate” with “Associate Trainer,” and allowing “Associate Trainer” to be stand-alone destinationas well as a step towards becoming Trainer
  • Fully incorporate streamlining measures that were approved as exceptions to Trainer Certification policy in 2015
  • Add requirements to strengthen the gateway to Educational Director status
  • Adjust two items in the International Training Accreditation Guidelines to support the proposed changes listed above

Following this feedback period, NATAB will review the feedback and consider revisions to the proposals. All training accreditation boards will review the revised proposals, and after final revisions, the proposal will be submitted to the governing bodies of the TABs for consideration.

North American Training Accreditation Board (NATAB):
Bonnie Humiston (Chair), Liza Weaver Brickey (Co-Chair), Elizabeth Beringer, David Zemach-Bersin, Anna Johnson-Chase, Olena Nitefor, Donna Simmons, Violet van Hees
