Got Questions about the 2-Day Instructor’s Training?

Who should attend?
If your goal is to teach skills to children, adolescents, or adults who have learning and/or mental health challenges, this training is for you!

  • Often social workers, mental health counselors, psychologists, BCBA’s, psychiatrists, and neuropsychologists attend the 2-Day Skills System Instructor’s Training.
  • In addition, people working in residential and/or day-treatment settings, who want to teach the people they support, staff, and family members, benefit from taking this 2-Day training.


  • Please complete the Skills System E-Learning Course 1 –  Skills Basics, and Course 2 – Skills Coaching Strategies before the training. This will optimize the learning experience at the 2-Day training. An individual access to Course 1 and 2 is included for people who are not already in the E-Learning.
  • Purchasing the Skills System text (2016) prior to the training is a great idea. We may refer to the book during the training, so having a copy of it will also enhance the learning experience. Click the button below to order your copy of the Skills System text from Guilford Press.
