The HIGH FIVE® Trainer course is a 2.5 day training designed for people responsible for training staff in an organization or are simply interested in helping to deliver HIGH FIVE training to agencies who believe in ensuring children have the best way to play! HIGH FIVE helps organizations improve the quality of children’s programs by making a commitment to continuous improvement in the area of healthy child development and training delivery, and having a HIGH FIVE Trainer on staff makes the delivery of HIGH FIVE easy and more cost-effective.

Trainer Candidates should be committed to the program, its philosophy and the integrity of delivering training, which meets the HIGH FIVE standard of excellence and should possess in-depth knowledge and understanding of the sector and the target audiences.
