CQL Trainer Certification is the next best thing to having a CQL consultant on your own staff.
Trainer Certification helps your organization develop a culture of person-centeredness. Not only do you benefit by having in-house “experts” available for year round training, other members of your staff receive hands-on training with CQL consultants. And the 15 days of on-site training and consultation are just the beginning of the support provided by CQL staff.
Each step of the Trainer Certification process builds upon the skills mastered in the previous step. The steps allow you to tailor your expertise in the Personal Outcome Measures®.
Step One: Introduction to the Personal Outcome Measures®
Participate in a four-day assessment workshop — an introduction to the process of meeting with people with disabilities using the Personal Outcome Measures®.
Step Two: Observation
Observe the CQL trainer to become familiar with the logistics and skills required to coach other participants through the assessment process.
Step Three: Reliability
Conduct an interview and follow-up while CQL staff observes so that each of you can make determinations about the outcomes independently. The criteria for certification is an 85% agreement with the CQL staff’s outcomes decisions.
Step Four: Conduct the Training for Certification
Conduct a Personal Outcomes Measures®. Assessment Workshop with CQL staff providing coaching, monitoring and evaluation for certification.
“Our greatest challenge was including the person in the process. I became a Certified Trainer so that through the Personal Outcomes I can teach others to focus on the people we are serving — not the programs. Promoting Personal Outcomes has afforded me the opportunity to expand our organization’s mission to ‘... help people with disabilities lead self determined lives ...’ across the state.”
