Unfortunately not. At present, we have made a decision to certify only a small number of organizational partners. Because we have chosen not to build an elaborate consulting/training organization, we don’t have the capacity to train and serve more than a small number of certified trainers. For reasons of scale, we’ve chosen to work with those inside larger organizations.
No, that’s not the intent of the TTT program—it’s intended to support organizations who want to roll out Switch training to a broad audience of employees. However, from time to time we do offer advanced Switch workshops that are intended to go beyond the lessons in the book. If you want to be the first to hear about these “Switch Masters Sessions,” click here.
We understand (and support!) the motivation, but it’s important to us to keep the TTT audience small enough that each trainer gets lots of attention. We are anticipating 20-25 trainers max. If you would like to bring more than 3 trainers, please let us know. Chances are, we will need to cap you at 3. But if several other organizations decide to bring only 1 trainer, then we might be able to accommodate you while still keeping the cohort size reasonable.
In short, to gauge your seriousness. In past TTT sessions, we observed that some people attended who were passionate about the Switch material but who had no plan for teaching the material to a larger group of their colleagues. In our minds, 100 licenses (which is the equivalent of 3-4 classes) is the minimum needed to show that (1) an organization has a rollout plan; and (2) the trainer will be receiving enough practice to stay sharp with the material.
Yes: Consider booking one of our Switch certified trainers. This will make more financial sense for organizations that have 100 or fewer employees to train. To give you a ballpark, a typical session led by a certified trainer ranges from $5,000 to $15,000, depending on the number of participants, location, session length, etc. Contact us with details about your situation (date, location, # of participants, desired session time) and we can provide a quote.
