Overview of online TRAINING MODULES

While you will find everything you need to run a successful program in both What's the Buzz? books, the TRAINING MODULES have been built to provide a much deeper relational and strategic insight. They contain a wealth of ideas about how to best deliver the program, and designs to cleverly circumven tpredictable teething troubles we've learnt through experience. The TRAINING MODULES are ideal for facilitators who are not able to attend our Training Days at Sophia.

As you can see below, there are 4 online TRAINING MODULES. These take about 2 hours to complete and give automatic online accreditation. You will be able to print an accreditation certificate as evidence of professional development.
