Why do we require that Alameda County providers do their initial CANS/ANSA Certification Training in person rather than simply having folks log in and do it themselves online? It’s a fair question to ask, given that it would seemingly be more efficient to have everyone do it on their own.
We do initial certification training in person because such an environment allows for deeper and broader understanding of these tools, connection-building with other providers, the opportunity for active conversation and questions, and the chance for individualized support from our experienced trainers. It is an all-day training, designed to allow you to briefly set aside your many obligations, immerse yourself in the experience, and not feel rushed. What’s more, most folks pass their certification test on their first try after these trainings, making this in-person setup, well, quite efficient, too.
Think about the trainings you have been to throughout your career. Which ones were more effective? Which ones answered your specific questions? From which kind did you retain more information? Here’s to more fantastic training and CANS-certified providers in 2020!
