Are you interested in offering Switch training inside your organization? If so, please read on. (On the other hand, if you are simply looking to enroll in Switch training yourself—to sharpen your own thinking and skills—then click here.)
This summer, we will hold a Train the Trainer (TTT) program for people who want to become Certified Switch Trainers. These trainers will:
This TTT program is designed for an intimate group; we will admit no more than 10 organizations. Each of those 10 organizations can invite a maximum of 3 trainers to join the TTT.
The TTT program will be structured in six phases: Role preparation; Audience; Backstage; Rehearsal; Performance; and Award and Adaptation.
There are two types of fees involved with the TTT: a certification fee for the trainers, and an ongoing license fee that is required for every participant in Switch training:
– Certification fee: The cost to become a Certified Switch Trainer is $4,500 per trainer. Each organization may bring up to 3 trainers. The certification fee includes all relevant materials, as well as meals (continental breakfasts, lunches and one group dinner). It does not include travel expenses such as airfare, lodging, or ground transportation.
– License fee: After the TTT, the Certified Switch Trainers will be ready to lead Switch workshops in their home organizations. For each participant in the Switch workshops, the organization will be responsible for a $125 license fee. This fee covers the IP license for the Switch framework, as well as a workshop “kit” for each participant, which includes a hardcover of Switch, a full-color workbook, and a laminated Switch framework summary. Please note that each organization will be required to pre-purchase 100 licenses as part of the registration for the TTT program; this is our way of ensuring that the organization is serious about a rollout of the training.
There are no discounts for certification fees. Nonprofits, government groups, and educational institutions are eligible for a 20% discount on the license fees (i.e., they will pay a per-license fee of $100).
If you would like to enroll in the Switch TTT program, fill out a short questionnaire and someone from our team will follow up with you. We will select the 10 organizations who we feel have the best chance of succeeding with the Switch training.

The certification fees and minimum license fees will be due, in full, no later than May 31. Your organization’s slot in the program is not guaranteed until we have received full payment. (As an example: If your organization wanted to certify 2 trainers, the upfront fee would be: 2 trainers x $4,500 each, plus 100 licenses (minimum) x $125 each = $9,000 + $12,500 = $21,500.
You can cancel your participation for a full refund until Tuesday, June 9 (six weeks prior to the program). From June 10 to July 6, cancellations will receive a 50% refund (of both certification fees and license fees). From July 7 until the event, no refunds will be given. Note that you can substitute one trainer for another, at no cost, until July 6. (We cannot allow last-minute swaps because there will be no time to process homework, etc.)
