Upon successful completion of the Train the Trainer Program, the student will receive a one-year instructor certificate. An audit is required within one year from the time their program is completed. This allows for the evaluator to observe the instructors teaching methods, the interaction with the students, the instructors exposure to various learning styles, and gives the evaluator the opportunity to inspect the equipment the instructor is using.

Once the instructor has successfully completed the audit process, they will then receive a three-year Instructor Certificate in the form of:

Course Overview

Adult learners bring a variety of life experiences, needs and abilities to their learning situations. Educators must respond with strategies and methods that facilitate learning and assist students in achieving their goals.

This program is intended to allow students to gain an in depth understanding of the adult learning world, and their specific chosen program, and to prepare them to instruct their chosen course to their own students. Topics include the principles of adult learning, presentation, teaching techniques, as well as technology integration with classroom management, curriculum design and development. Students will have the opportunity to observe their chosen program, whereby they will learn the components of the program, timeline, and pace of the course. The students will then dissect the course with the instructor, having opportunities to ask questions and learn the course materials. The student will then be faced with co-presenting a course with the other students (if applicable) and the Train the Trainer instructor.

Our Train the Trainer program explores adult learning techniques and instructional design principles and is a prerequisite to all our other train the trainer topics. These students must meet certain standards and requirements in order to be recognized as a certified trainer. A candidate instructor will need to satisfy the below before moving onto the next steps.

Candidate instructors must hold a current and valid Loader Operator ticket, as well as a current and valid standard first aid ticket. If they do not have a current ticket for either, then they will need to obtain a ticket before the Train the Trainer start date. In addition, instructors must have a minimum of three years’ experience with Loader Operator prior to taking the Red Tail Train the Trainer- Loader Operator program.
Experience can be a combination of practical, training and education. Students must submit a resume with the applicable experience and three trade related references, along with liability insurance in the amount of two million. This can be personal, or their host facilities liability insurance.

Summary of requirements for candidate instructor intake:
• Resume of candidate instructor
• Minimum three years’ experience with heavy equipment
• Minimum three relevant work experience references
