We strongly recommend that every teacher who implements Project TNT participate in a training workshop, conducted by a certified Project TNT trainer, prior to beginning delivery of the program. The objectives of the Project TNT training workshop are to provide teachers with an understanding of the theoretical basis, content, instructional techniques, and objectives of the program. In addition, the training is designed to build the skills that teachers need to deliver the lessons with fidelity.

We offer in-person training workshops that last either one or two days. Our certified trainers are health education specialists who have classroom experience with Project TNT.
