What’s the difference between TOT and LTW?

In a one-day Leader Training Workshop (LTW), you will learn how to present parenting education programs to parents in your community. At the 3-day TOT, you will learn how to train parenting education leaders. Upon completion of requirements, you will be authorized to conduct LTWs.

Note: Completion of a Leader Training Workshop or Webinar (LTW) in one of the core programs is required before taking the TOT.

Money-back guarantee!

We are convinced you’ll leave your training workshop feeling informed and energized. If you are not satisfied for any reason, let us know within 3 business days of your training date and we’ll refund your registration fee. Books, materials, and certificate must be returned in clean, resell-able condition, or $44.90 ($75 for TOT) will be deducted from your refund.
