Train the Trainer Information


Effective April 1, 2010, DHS 83.20 requires instructor approval in order to teach the four department-approved CBRF training courses. Approval is based on professional credentials, experience and/or educational background.

The CBRF Train the Trainer program has been developed to offer another option for individuals without the required background to seek approval as an instructor, based on successful completion of a department-approved Train the Trainer course.
