About CATCH Training
CATCH Training is an integral part of a successful CATCH program. Planning and supporting training is the first step in changing your school or organization’s environment and helps maximize the benefits of the CATCH Program. Beyond being educational
and informative, this hands-on training is fun and encourages communication and teamwork!

CATCH Training Levels
1-Day Implementation Training
Attendees will receive training in successfully implementing the CATCH program in their schools or organizations utilizing the CATCH materials and curriculum. The implementation training is great if your organization has one or two additional staff members that need training or you work for a very small program and only need a small number of staff trained.
3-Day Training Academy
Attendees (who pass our certification test at the end of our three day training) will be certified CATCH Community Trainers who can conduct implementation trainings within their districts, organizations and regions (for those educators/public health professionals who service larger areas than a school district). Training certifications are subject to CATCH Trainer Terms and Conditons).
Attendance at the three day Academy will ensure your school, district or organization long term sustainability as your core administrative staff are trained to deliver the award winning CATCH program.
