Upcoming Meetings

2021 PSA Trainers & Lead Trainers Annual Update Webinar

October 26, 2021 - 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern
All PSA Trainers, Lead Trainers, and Trainers-of-Trainers are encouraged to attend the meeting. More information will be available closer to the date of the meeting, along with registration information. 

Trainer Refresher Series: October - November 2020

PSA Trainers and Lead Trainers, are you preparing to offer Remote PSA Grower Training courses? If so, join us for a series of Train-the-Trainer refreshers on Thursdays in October and November at noon Eastern time. Each week we will devote an hour to one module with tips for teaching remotely. We’ll discuss the critical concepts from that module and strategies we use to increase participant engagement. There will be time for questions and discussion. The basic presentation each week will be recorded and available on the PSA website for later viewing, but we will not be recording the discussion so that trainers can ask their questions freely. 

Note: Participation in this series will not result in receiving the PSA/AFDO Certificate of Course Completion for the Train-the-Trainer Course. We will review the content at a high level, and provide any pertinent updates and teaching tips during each session. Non-PSA Trainers and Lead Trainers are welcome to attend, though as previously stated, this series will not cover the PSA Train-the-Trainer content in detail.
