Become a Trainer

Our training is not only powerful, relevant, and engaging—it’s also easy and fun to deliver.

Through the certification process, you’ll discover how the skills taught in our training courses help participants improve their lives and enable your organization to achieve measurable and sustainable results.

In addition, all VitalSmarts trainers are part of a community with access to robust resources and personalized support.

The Certification Process

The easiest and most cost-effective way to implement a VitalSmarts training course is to get certified as an on-site client facilitator via our “Train the Trainer” process. The train-the-trainer process also allows organizations to optimize and customize training to meet their specific needs – whether you’re training an in-tact team or your entire workforce.
