Peer Facilitator Training & Tracking
To maintain certification, Peer Facilitators and Master Facilitators must be able to demonstrate their commitment to the program by taking part in at least 40 hours of continuing education over a two-year period, following successful completion of the mentorship process. Peer Facilitators and Master Facilitators are required to report completed continuing education to SafeCare BC regularly. SafeCare BC will issue recertification provided recertification requirements are met.
Continuing education hours can be accumulated in the following ways:
- A minimum of 2 workshops in the first year and 2 workshops in the second year, following mentorship approval
- A minimum of all curriculum edition updates and refresher training (if applicable)
- Peer-to-peer coaching, safety huddles and new employee orientations, or other types of workplace health and safety training
- Professional development (online or in-person) as approved by the Association
In addition to fulfilling the continuing education hours of Peer Facilitators, Master Facilitators must be available to facilitate a train-the-trainer workshop once per year.
If you are unsure about the eligibility of your continuing education hours, please contact Training@safecarebc.ca.
Applications are now open for the next Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum Facilitator Training!
The Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum (PVPC) is currently recognized as the best-practice in violence prevention training for health care workers. Because continuing care is recognized as a high-risk sector for violence against staff, it is important to ensure that all staff be given access to violence prevention training.
This session is a four-day training with the intention of giving you the tools to become a confident PVPC Peer Facilitator. Following these sessions, participants will be expected to teach their own workshops at their own sites. We ask that each site send two participants to a session. This allows for co-facilitator support when teaching sessions.
If you have a passion for people, learning, and teaching, we want to hear from you!
See how your organization can benefit by having your own trained facilitators.
