Trainers

A NAPWDA Trainer must be a "Regular" member of NAPWDA for at least 3 consecutive years prior to applying for accreditation. Members wishing to become an accredited NAPWDA Trainer will have been critiqued by at least two current NAPWDA Master Trainers for specific hours in each phase they are applying for, assisted Master Trainers with NAPWDA certifications and training and have a letter of recommendation from at least one NAPWDA Master Trainer. When their application package is complete they will then be required to appear before the committee for written tests and an oral assessment board. Upon approval by the NAPWDA Executive Board the Trainer will then serve a two year probationary period.
