  • Description: This workshop is for those with prior training experience wishing to become an "NTG Affiliated Trainer."  The first two days of the workshop cover the topics outlined above in the 2 Day Basic Workshop.  A third day is added and is devoted to understanding and delivering the full NTG Dementia Capable Care Curriculum.  NTG Affiliated Trainers are authorized to ouse NTG branded and copyrighted training materials to train within their own organization or to conduct training for outside agencies and organizations.  Affiliated trainers have access to greatly expanded topic modules, trainer manual, NTG continuing education webinars, and are mentored by NTG Master Trainers. Following completion of the workshop participants are required to successfully complete an online test of knowledge before they will be awarded a certificate of completion and receive NTG branded and copyrighted training materials.  
  • Outcome: Greater understanding of dementia and its effects on people with intellectual disabilities, greater capacity to provide dementia-capable direct services to adults with ID and dementia, and knowledge of how to develop a dementia-capable environment and programming.
