Prime Solutions® Training

"The outline of the sessions and seeing how a sample session could be conducted were the most helpful parts of Prime Solutions® training. I typically do not enjoy interactive trainings, however this was done very well, and I felt comfortable participating. Seeing how the website worked was also helpful. "
South Carolina Prime Solutions® Counselor

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM PRIME SOLUTIONS LEVEL II TRAINING?

Prime Solutions Level II Webinar training involves a dynamic blend of small group sessions, a review of participant and client interactions, and out of session readings and activities. The small group training sessions will consist of eight to 10 participants and one trainer. They are done via Webinar and designed to enhance and maintain practitioner skills in the use of Prime Solutions®. There will be six content sessions over a twelve week period, along with an initial session designed to increase comfort with the Webinar technology and recorders. Participants will be expected to participate in the 2 hour training sessions once every two weeks from their home or office. Participants should also expect to spend an additional 90 minutes each week completing the out of session readings and other activities. As part of those activities, participants will be expected to provide at least one audio recording of a work sample over the 12 weeks for which they will receive individual feedback and coaching via the telephone.
