Training & Support

Training & Support

We've created a convenient and complete training process that will interest experienced health professionals, yet is accessible for laypeople and professionals from non-health backgrounds. You may choose to train for Active Living Every Day, Healthy Eating Every Day, or both. Facilitators complete these steps for each course:

  • Become familiar with the content. Facilitators review the Active Living Every Day and/or Healthy Eating Every Day participant book to gain an understanding of how the strategies and concepts are presented to participants.
  • Complete the facilitator training course. Each course provides the background information and materials needed to facilitate and implement Active Living Every Day or Healthy Eating Every Day. Each course is delivered in a print format, with easy-to-access forms, handouts, lesson plans, and other resources available right here through our web site.
  • Successfully complete an online competency exam. The exam for each course includes 75 true-false and multiple choice questions. You need to achieve an 80% passing grade in order to print a completion certificate.
