Training of Trainers (TOT) Event Pre-Training Materials
A Training of Trainers event is designed to quickly review the key points of each section of the Adolescent SBIRT Slide Deck and provide opportunities to practice teaching the content, ask questions, and solidify their understanding of the material intended to be delivered for each slide. To focus the time spent together in a Training of Trainers event, attendees are expected to complete some pre-training assignments independently.
