Q: What is the Train the Trainer Online?
A: Train the Trainer Online is a new training program that allows you to master the same core training tools and techniques I teach during my LIVE Train the Trainer program – without the same time, money, and travel investment requirements for the live training. And because it’s entirely self-paced and self-taught, you can complete the work on your own schedule no matter where you are in the world.
Q: What is included in the Train the Trainer Online Training?
A: Train the Trainer Online is a video-based training program that was shot live in the classroom over the course of a year – and then edited down to 35+ hours of my most powerful training. You’ll feel like you’re in the classroom with us as I teach my proven methodology and give you everything you need to implement a “Jack Canfield Style” training yourself: a proven Success Principles curriculum, student exercises, training examples and techniques, student and trainer workbooks, classroom worksheets, almost five hours of meditation audios, a complete half-day workshop you can present “right out of the box,” workshop design templates so you can customize various content to suit your training needs, a “director’s cut” of one of my keynote speeches with commentary to help you hone your own presentation and speaking skills, and a Getting Started video that gives you an overview and explains how to use the product. There is no more comprehensive or powerful speaking and training program online.
Q: How long does it take to complete the Train the Trainer Online Training?
A: That is entirely up to you. Since this is self-paced and self-taught training, you can complete the training on your own time and adapt it to your current schedule in a way that makes sense for you. If you work full time and only have a few hours in the evenings and/or on weekends to study, you’ll still be able to move through the content at a steady pace, learning powerful new techniques you can put into practice in your life, business, and teaching practice right away. Or you can spend a few months deeply immersing yourself in the materials full time to accelerate your training and become a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer that much faster. Whatever works best for you.
Q: Does the program expire?
A: No, there is no expiration date. You can take as long as you want to move through the content and fully master the methodology. This training will be available for years to come – and will be constantly refined and enhanced, with new tools and insights being made available on a regular basis – so you’ll always have access to my most powerful training resources. Plus you’ll always be welcome in the forums to network and collaborate with other Canfield Trainers to share ideas and find out what strategies and tools are working best for other successful speakers, teachers, and trainers.
That said, if you have not applied to become certified within 24 months after entering the program, you will be considered “inactive” and will have to speak to a member of our team to become reactivated and discuss your next steps. We want to make sure you get the most out of this program and see it all the way to completion.
Q: Is this training interactive?
A: Throughout the video modules, you’ll watch as I take the students through various interactive exercises. I invite you to imagine yourself being in the classroom with us and participating in the activity from home. However, since the lessons are videotaped, it’s obviously not the same as being there in person. (Group and pair activities aren’t the same and you won’t get the same opportunity to be on stage with a room full of people applauding you, for example.) However, you will have the handouts and other resources necessary to work through the activities on your own and get the most out of each exercise. Plus you’ll receive everything you need to teach these interactive exercises to students in your own trainings.
Q: How effective is an online training?
A: Very effective! You’ll get access to the exact same core training and resources I provide to my Train The Trainer Live students – and you’ll have the ability to pause and re-watch anything you’d like to explore the content more fully, which is something the live participants don’t get. The only real difference is that you’re not in the same room and won’t get to talk to me or the other students directly.
(Although I will be holding regular Q&As in the near future, and adding a huge archive of “Ask Jack” audios in which I answer pretty much every question any student has ever asked me, so although you can’t ask me a question immediately there will be plenty of opportunity to ask me on a live call – or go to the forum and ask your fellow trainers for their thoughts.)
Q: What happens when I am done with the program? Is there a test or way to indicate that I have finished and “passed” the digital training?
A: Yes! There will be an online test you can take once you’ve completed all the study modules to measure how well you have mastered the Canfield Training principles and methodology. You are not required to take this test at any specific time, but it is a necessary step to becoming a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer.
Q: How do I get to be a “Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer”?
A: In order to be Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer you must: (1) complete the Train the Trainer Online Training; (2) pass the quiz at the end of modules; (3) Submit the essays.
The complete certification guidelines are outlined in the product so you will know exactly what to submit and what the evaluation criteria is.
Q: What does it mean to be a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer and how can I use my certification?
A: Getting certified as a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer is similar to receiving a diploma from school. It shows that you have furthered your education by completing all of the core trainings, and that you have demonstrated that you can deliver the content effectively in your own classroom. You can use the title, official graphic seal and diploma in your bio, your marketing materials, etc. I’m well-known and respected by millions around the world – and being able to say that you’re officially certified by the Canfield team to use my methodology will be a great way to increase your reach and enhance your reputation as a masterful speaker, teacher, and/or trainer.
Q: Once I complete all the training modules, when can I submit materials to the Canfield Trainer Advisory Board for review?
A: In most cases we will ask people to wait 90 days after entering the program – and of course, complete all the modules and pass the quiz – before applying for certification. The reason why we ask you to wait 90 days is because there is so much training for you to absorb and we encourage you to go through the modules at least two-three times so you can get the most out of the training and fully embody the teaching principles and methodology. However, if you have been living The Success Principles for years and already have a thriving career as a speaker, teacher, or trainer, you may be eligible for early certification. Our team will assess such requests on a case-by-case basis.
Also, as mentioned above, if you have not submitted your quiz and essays for review within 24 months after entering the program, you will be considered “inactive” in our system and must contact the company to discuss your situation and next steps.
Q: How long is the review process by the Canfield Trainer Advisory Board?
A: Once you send us your quiz and essays for review, you will hear back from us in 30 days or less. As you can imagine, our advisory board will want to put careful thought into reviewing each candidate’s submission before determining whether they have successfully met certification requirements. And for those who don’t pass, we offer detailed feedback on where their weaknesses are and what they should do to strengthen their ability to deliver the training effectively.
Q: Am I guaranteed to be certified? What if I do not pass? What do I do?
A: No, there is no guarantee that you will be certified. We want this certification to be meaningful guarantee that our trainers are exceptional at what they do, so only those who meet the requirements will become a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer. However, if you go through the modules at least three times and are able to successfully implement The Success Principles in your life and effectively teach others to do the same, you should have no problem passing the test and achieving certification. And if you don’t pass the first time, the Canfield Training Advisory Board will give you feedback on the areas you need to work on and you will be allowed to resubmit your test and essays one (1) additional time. After that, if you still do not pass the Canfield Training Advisory Board will recommend another course of action.
Q: What title can I use once I am certified?
A: You will be a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer. As you can guess, the Canfield name is well known and respected in the personal and professional development communities – so being able to say that you were trained personally by me and my team will be a great way to establish your reputation and grow your reach.
Q: Can I use this title forever?
A: Yes, as long as you are in good standing with the company and follow the company’s policies and Code of Ethics.
Q: Is there a fee to become a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer? Also, is there a yearly renewal fee?
A: No. The cost to become a Success Principles Certified Trainer is included in the cost of the program when you purchase it. There is absolutely no renewal fee, and no future materials to submit in order to keep your certification active.
Q: If I am a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer, do I have an exclusive territory or region where I can teach?
A: No, there are no exclusive territories or regions. You are able to teach wherever you choose to teach. So if you move to a different country or state, you can easily set up practice in your new location without having to jump through any hoops.
Q: What materials can I use if I am a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer?
A: You are authorized to teach the content and exercises from the online program and use certain copyrighted worksheets and slides that are included in the program. There is a wealth of resources that you can take out of the box and use right away or adapt for your own personal teaching needs.
Q: What if I need help or support while working through the online training modules – what do I do?
A: We offer a support during normal business hours (Pacific Standard Time). You can contact us anytime and we’ll be happy to help in any way we can. You’ll also have the opportunity to interact with other successful trainers and speakers in our Train the Trainer online community, where you can get answers to your biggest questions and share insights and ideas with people who are already out in the field, putting this training into practice. We will regularly update the community with new content and material, so you’ll always have access to our latest and most successful tools and strategies.
Q: If I am a Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer can I use the Jack Canfield brand name or trademarks?
A: No. You can use the Certified Canfield Success Principles Trainer title and all of our branded worksheets and slides. But you cannot use the Jack Canfield brand name or trademarks, and you are not authorized to act on behalf of the Company or represent the Company in any way without prior written permission.
