Trainer Status and Requirements

Trainer Title


Upon successful completion of the Tier II program and Tier III Certification, a Certified Active Trainer can use the following distinctions:

  • OCDE Project GLAD® Tier III Candidate (for individuals in the Tier II process)
  • OCDE Project GLAD® Tier III Agency Trainer
  • Project GLAD® NTC Tier III Agency Trainer
  • OCDE Project GLAD® Tier IV Consultant
  • Project GLAD® NTC Tier IV Consultant

Only an individual that has completed these rigorous processes are permitted to use these distinctions or other iterations including “GLAD” and “Trainer,” “Mentor,” “Support,” etc.  If a trainer lapses in their status, and becomes Inactive, these distinctions are not to be used until clearance of one’s status.

Trainer Status


Maintaining an Active Certified status is mandatory if you deliver Tier I 2-Day Research and Theory Workshops and 4-or 5-Day Classroom Demonstrations.  Active status is maintained by successfully completing continuing education (Recertification) by your due date listed on your Recertification letter and completing all Certification or Recertification requirements.   Criteria for maintaining one’s status is subject to change. 

With a few exceptions, most Tier IV Consultants who are actively participating in delivering the OCDE Project GLAD® NTC Tier I model must complete Recertification every two years.  Whereas, Tier III Agency Trainers must complete Recertification every three years.

Requirements


All Tiers are expected to recertify prior to the expiration of their License Agreement.  It is a trainer’s responsibility to monitor one’s expiration date and attend Recertification.  Recertification dates are made available in May of each year for the year following.  In order to ensure the continued integrity of the OCDE Project GLAD® model, the NTC expects all of its trainers to engage in continuing education (Recertification) in a timely fashion as specified within the terms of the License Agreement.  That being said, the NTC recognizes that there may be rare circumstances impeding one’s ability to timely complete the Recertification process.  Should that occur, please be advised that the NTC is adopting the following procedure for Recertification that occurs after the expiration of the License Agreement terms:

  • Upon expiration of the License Agreement, the trainee is considered inactive, and holds an inactive status and is not authorized to conduct any OCDE Project GLAD® training that they must complete Recertification as soon as is practicable and be required to pay a $500 reactivation fee.
  • Failure to recertify within 2 years of expiration of License Agreement will result in the trainer:
    • Participating in a 2-Day Intensive Bootcamp prior to admittance into Recertification
    • Paying a $500 reactivation fee
    • Participating in Recertification per criteria’s met
  • Failure to recertify within 6 years or more of expiration of License Agreement will result in the trainer:
    • Completing another Certification process prior to admittance into Recertification
    • Paying a $500 reactivation fee
    • Participating in Recertification per criteria’s met
