Become a ‘train the trainer’

PRICE Training offers a range of certified instructor courses that license you to cascade our 2-5 day PACB© Courses within your own organisation.

Trainees are encouraged to explore and think critically and creatively around the technical aspects of the subject matter, with key issues such as judgement and technique application being explored. Through the use of micro-teaching and subsequent peer feedback, trainees develop an ability and confidence to replicate and articulate newly acquired skills. Continuous assessment is used throughout train the trainer courses, as well as a final assessment by a person independent of the course.
