Become a Trainer in Your Community

The Overdose Lifeline Trainer Programs allow individuals to get trained in delivering the courses in their local communities. To date, more than 440 trainers and delivery partners across over 28 U.S. states have been trained to deploy youth and adult programming. Individuals need to complete one or more prerequisite courses and program training online. If planning to become a trainer in more than one program, fees* may be lower as some of the prerequisites cross programs.

* Annual licensing and training fees vary by program.

On-Site Training & Live Online Training

Overdose Lifeline offers live online and on-site training at your facility for groups of five or more. A cost effective way to train a group of individuals on your schedule. We perform pre- and post-class evaluations to assess attendees’ knowledge before and after taking the training. For certain courses, we may assign pre-course work to prime attendees for the training. This ensures that the participants are fully prepared for the learning experience and will be able to retain as much information as possible.

This training gave a great overview of opioids and their effects on the body. It also allows the participant the ability to learn about recovery practices and not just the addiction side, which I thought was excellent! The training also taught about naloxone, reasons for its use, history and how to administer.
