In our ongoing effort to meet the educational needs of our APRA membership, we would like to create a comprehensive library of diverse relevant training proposals that will be readily available to offer for various programs throughout the year. In order to create such a library of training topics, APRA is issuing this call for Preliminary Training Proposals. Please note: this is a call for General Proposals, not the Call for Proposals for the Annual Conference.
Who should consider submitting proposals?
APRA seeks to fulfill the educational needs of our members by offering diverse, captivating and comprehensive training sessions that reflect a multitude of perspectives. We will select sessions based on their contribution to the following criteria:
APRA Training Network
APRA will launch the APRA Training Network of accomplished trainers who have successfully conducted multiple individualized trainings for APRA (co-presenting is acceptable). This Training Network will be made available to all APRA Agencies and Regions to conduct in-house training based upon availability. In order to remain in good standing in the APRA Training Network, professionals must conduct at least one APRA training in the past two years and become an ambassador to help identify new and developing trainers in the field.
Trainings are held Monday - Friday on non-holidays.
1.15 - 2.5 hour sessions
1/2 Day Training
Full Day Workshops
Please specify if your training requires specific facility requirements (pool, playground, etc.) when completing the form.
Commercial / Promotional Restrictions
Your presentation may NOT sell, raffle or otherwise promote a product, service or organization in which you have a financial interest.
Applying for Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
Many APRA members work hard to retain their professional certifications, which require CEU's. Once your session has been accepted, presenters will be required to complete and submit the CEU approval form.
