|How to Become an IAP2 Trainer|
IAP2’s Licensed Trainers are not just passionate about public participation. They are highly qualified practitioners who have honed their public participation and public engagement knowledge and skills. They are talented teachers, bringing concepts alive for beginning through advanced adult learners. They deliver IAP2 courses in their own communities, around their regions, and across the world, sharing their own first-hand experience as P2/engagement practitioners with course participants. IAP2’s trainers model IAP2’s Core Values and Code of Ethics, not only in the training room but in their own practice.
Before they are licensed, each of our trainers completes rigorous training and assessment that includes in-depth learning about the content of our courses and the principles of adult learning, observation of IAP2 trainers in action, and practice deliveries. Throughout the learning journey, future trainers are mentored by highly qualified IAP2 trainers who provide deep knowledge of the course and our profession. The learning journey culminates with a recommendation to the Board to be licensed to deliver IAP2 courses anywhere in the world.
To meet the worldwide demand for our courses, IAP2 periodically recruits for new trainers. We especially invite applicants from under-represented cultures, countries, or communities.
