What should I expect when scheduling and coordinating the training?
Pennsylvania has established a collaborative infrastructure to oversee and coordinate SFP 10-14 training in Pennsylvania. Collaborative partners from the Pennsylvania State University include: the Prevention Research Center, Cooperative Extension, the Evidence-based Prevention and Intervention Support Center (EPIS), and The Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness. Iowa State University has approved their training to be delivered in Pennsylvania using a select cadre of Pennsylvania-certified Trainer of Facilitators.
The recommended training takes place over three consecutive days with each day typically beginning at 8:00 a.m. and ending by 5:00 p.m. Training is offered at a site of your choosing. The cost is the same for up to 15 participants. It is highly recommended that as many facilitators as possible be trained in anticipation of any future staff turnover. The program coordinator, fidelity observers, and key program partners, such as those responsible for recruiting, should also attend. Currently, costs are estimated at $4,200 plus travel expenses (estimated at approximately $1,700) for one trainer, training up to 15 participants. Larger groups (16-30 participants) can be trained with an additional trainer for $5,400 (plus an additional $1,700 for the 2nd trainer).
Are there other sites in Pennsylvania that have been trained in the SFP 10-14 model?
Coordinating training in partnership with other Pennsylvania sites to train replacement staff due to facilitator attrition can potentially reduce costs. EPIS maintains a list of sites funded by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD). Please contact the EPIS SFP 10-14 Implementation Specialist to learn about other Pennsylvania sites and coordinate training.
