If you would like to become a Trainer

Recreation Nova Scotia hosts a Trainer Workshop each year in Nova Scotia.

The HIGH FIVE® Trainer workshop is a 2.5-day training designed for people responsible for training staff in an organization or for folks simply interested in helping to deliver training to multiple agencies who believe in ensuring children have the best way to play! Trainers often become community champions who help organizations improve the quality of programs by making a commitment to continuous improvement in the area of healthy child development and training delivery.

As a certified Trainer, you will be able to deliver training that provides participants with nationally recognized certification in the sports and recreation industry. Several municipalities, non for profit organizations and service providers in Nova Scotia now either require or recommend HIGH FIVE® certification for employment. For many of you who may be with a HIGH FIVE® Organization, once you are certified as a Trainer, delivery of HIGH FIVE® training becomes easy and more cost-effective for your Organization.

Learner Outcomes

At the completion of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Identify the history, purpose, and scope of HIGH FIVE®
  • Identify youth and adult learning styles
  • Use creative techniques and effective communication skills to deliver HIGH FIVE® content
  • Deliver HIGH FIVE® Workshops with confidence

Successful candidates will receive a certificate.
