Our 2-day Train-the-Trainer program provides you with the resources and instructional methods needed to become an effective WAH Training Provider. YOW Canada has spent over 8 months developing our WAH blended learning training program and working with the Ontario Ministry of Labour (MOL) to ensure that our course exceeds all the required standards. You can save time and money by using our MOL approved WAH program for your own submission to become an approved Ontario WAH Training Provider.
Who Should Take this Course?
WAH blended learning delivery is ideal for Trainers that prefer teaching and demonstrating practical topics, like how to correctly use and inspect personal protective equipment. Our program will teach Learners the Basic Theory topics before they come to you for the Part 2 Practical training.
Blended learning is also a good option for Trainers that have a large number of clients that need to be trained - reducing classroom training time from approximately 8 hours to 4 hours allows Trainers to deliver more classes.
Also, blended learning delivery is ideal for Trainers working with Learners that are comfortable with online training. While studies have shown that 84% of learners prefer blended learning to just classroom training, blended learning is not for all Learners.
Please note that there are prerequisites that Trainers must meet before they can become a Training Provider - for more information please see the MOL’s Training Provider Standards.
About This Training

The best Instructional Methods to help Learners understand topics and retain the knowledge.
Explain the MOL's Training Provider Application process, so you have a clear understanding of what to expect after you submit your application.
You will complete and submit your own Training Provider Application before leaving at the end of Day 2! YOW will audit each application before it is submitted to ensure all the requirements have been met.
Provide tips and guidelines to give you the best chance of passing the MOL Field Assessment.

Earn $400 for Delivering Part 2: Practical Training with “YOW Connections”
YOW Connections is a portal where YOW lists a number of scheduled WAH courses by city, date and time. For these courses, YOW will take care of recruiting and registering Learners, including discussing the course and answering any questions. YOW will also manage Part 1: Basic Theory delivery and booking the training venue for Part 2 classroom training. The only thing left to do is deliver the Part 2 Practical Training for which qualifying Trainers will be paid $400.
Approved Trainers that have taken YOW's Train-the-Trainer course and have signed up for Connections, can access the portal to view available classroom courses. If Trainers find a WAH course at a location, date and time they are available, they can contact YOW to “take responsibility” for the Part 2 classroom training. YOW will book the trainer and send the materials needed to deliver the classroom training. The Connections course will display on the Trainer's Dashboard so it's easy to remember. After delivering the classroom training and submitting the necessary paperwork to the MOL, the Trainer invoices YOW for $400 and is paid within 30 days.
