PreVenture Facilitator Training
Become a PreVenture Facilitator
Teachers, mental health practitioners, counselors, and anyone who undergoes proper training with a licensed PreVenture implementation specialist can deliver the program in their community.
Facilitator training can take up to two and a half days. Once the training is completed, you will receive a certification valid for one year. If after the one year mark, you wish to continue delivering PreVenture in your community, you will need to renew your certification license with Dr. Conrod’s team at the University of Montreal but Overdose Lifeline will assist in this process.
As part of your training, you will gain access to the preventure.us website with a personalized facilitator dashboard with all the tools you’ll need to deliver the program successfully, such as:
- Resources: consent forms, peer-review articles, best practices, etc.
- SURPS: online tool to create, distribute, collect, and automatically score the SURPS
- Database with all the SURPS you have conducted over time
The training will observe CDC social distancing guidelines due to COVID-19. Space is limited.
