Training Cost

$1,800   FULL training fee per professional (examples include employee with a role of program coordinator, health educator, social worker, researcher, diabetes educator, nurse, doctor).

$1,000   FULL training fee for a lay person with chronic disease (examples include a volunteer for an organization who is donating time to deliver the self-management programs).

How Our Programs Work

All workshops and trainings are designed to be facilitated by 2 people. It is strongly suggested that health professionals bring a lay person with a chronic disease with them. Each trainee receives a detailed CDSMP Leader's Manual, and a copy of the workshop's textbook and audio CDs (if applicable). Those being trained as Master Trainers (trainers of leaders) will also receive a trainer's manual.  In order to become a certified Master Trainer you will need to attend training, and facilitate 2 participant workshops (each workshop has 6 sessions) within 12 months of being trained. After you have facilitated 2 workshops and submitted the required paperwork for certification as a Master Trainer, you are authorized to train new  leaders.
