Trainings By Request

The REMS TA Center offers a variety of Trainings by Request (TBR) for delivery on site at your school, school district, or institution of higher education (IHE). For each training, we will provide—free of charge—training materials, as well as one or more expert trainers and REMS TA Center staff support for the event hosted at your site. To learn more about each training, as well as the requirements you must fulfill to be eligible to host, please see the information below.

The following contains detailed information about each of the training topics that we offer on a rolling basis.

How do I know if I am eligible to receive a Training by Request at my site?

Please carefully review the topics, attendance requirements associated with each training type, as well as the length of training curriculum and its applicability to your school, school district, or IHE. In order to receive a training at your facility, you must also meet the following criteria:

  • Be a public or nonpublic K-12 school, school district, IHE, local education agency (LEA), regional education agency (REA), or state education agency (SEA).
  • Designate an on-site and local point of contact who will coordinate with REMS TA Center staff members and trainers regarding the logistics of the event.
  • Market the training to the appropriate audience to ensure the minimum required number of attendees. Please review the number of participants in the REMS TA Center Trainings by Request: At a Glance.
  • Provide a comfortable training site that offers seating arrangements conducive to the type of training being delivered. Moveable tables and chairs are recommended for small group activities that are a part of the trainings. Required audiovisual equipment includes a laptop with PowerPoint installed and Internet and video capabilities, a projector, a screen, and a white board or an easel with chart paper. Depending on the room size, lapel and/or hand-held microphones may be required. Three tables are needed: one for the laptop in the front of the room, one for the trainers in the front or the side of the room, and one for on-site registration in the back of the room or outside of the room.
  • Other requirements, as they pertain to specific trainings.
