Train The Trainer Program

Ohio's Public Institutions came together to create and design training programs for faculty and staff across the state. The topics included: ACE/CCAF/JST tools, background and understanding of HB488, veteran transition and translation issues, and Prior Learning Assessment/MTAGs/Transferology. These modules were created by experts across Ohio and are encouraged to be used by anyone interested in conducting this training. Please feel free to use these training modules at your own institution by simply adding your logo and tailoring the questions to your own institutional needs.

Also, please contact Jshank@highered.ohio.gov if your institution plans to offer this training program and we will list it as a training opportunity.
