Tips for a Successful Training
If you lose your manual, you will need to order and pay for a new one. (Order a new manual above.)
Each of the CCAR Programs are a unique training program that are designed to be conducted in a retreat-type environment. When choosing a location for your on-site training, CCAR recommends a space that is large enough for people to move about in a variety of seating arrangements. Tables and chairs that can be moved easily are ideal for this training program. Our programs utilize small groupings, large groupings and a wide array of activities so participants stay fully engaged while learning and practicing their newly acquired skills.
Items that will need to be in place for a successful CCAR Training are:
- Table groupings for 6-8 people to table
- Several easels and pads (one for each table grouping)
- A screen and a LCD projector
- Toys (Yes, Toys! Stressballs, cans of playdough, pipe cleaners, etc. are great for adult learners who may need to keep their hands busy while sitting through full days of training.)
Evaluations and Certificates
How To Receive Your Certificate
Once you register your training CART will send you a unique evaluation link and class number for your training. Please provide this to your participants on the final day of training. They will be directed to a webpage after they complete the evaluation with instructions on how to download and print their certificate.
