Our LivingWorks Training for Trainers (T4T) prepares people to become LivingWorks trainers and offer our face-to-face programs in their communities, workplaces, and beyond.
A LivingWorks T4T is a powerful, hands-on learning experience. Supported by expert LivingWorks coaches, youʼll learn to train many others in the skills to help keep people safer from suicide.
Find an upcoming T4T in our online calendar and submit an Expression of Interest form via the link provided. All candidates must have completed LivingWorks ASIST in the last two years.
Once you successfully complete the LivingWorks Training for Trainers, you will become a Provisional Trainer with certain requirements to graduate to full Registered Trainer status.
Requirements to become a Registered Trainer include presenting three workshops within a year of your LivingWorks T4T.
Once youʼre a Registered Trainer, you must continue to uphold the LivingWorks quality training standards and stay current by presenting a minimum number of workshops annually.
LivingWorks trainers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences, and no single “type” is predisposed to success. However, good qualities include presentation and facilitation skills, patience, a willingness to talk about suicide, and an “always learning” mindset.
Many people become trainers at the request of their employers so that they can provide training for their colleagues at work. Others offer training in their communities as a full or part-time career. How you choose to bring training to your community is up to you, and LivingWorks will provide you with guidance and support.
LivingWorks Trainers bring suicide alertness and suicide first-aid to millions of people every year by providing access to the knowledge and skills of suicide prevention and intervention. Studies have shown that, on average, workshop participants carry out at least one suicide intervention within the first six months after attending LivingWorks ASIST, and that some participants—depending on their role and exposure to those in need—carry out more than 20. By providing evidence-based, effective suicide prevention and intervention skills to their communities, trainers directly contribute to creating suicide safer communities across the world. Becoming a Registered Trainer is a powerful investment in supporting, building, and renewing the wellness of your community and organisation.
