The WAH Train-the-Trainer program is designed to train individuals to become blended learning instructors for the Working at Heights in Ontario program.
This training takes place over 2 in-class sessions.
During the training course you will complete your application to the Ministry of Labour to become an accredited trainer. Your training instructor will guide you through this process.
Both new and existing trainers who want to save time and money by delivering "blended-learning" Working at Heights training.
Using YOW Canada's Train the Trainer program has several benefits:
The MOL allows Training Providers to deliver WAH training for each application that they have submitted and that has been approved by the Chief Prevention Officer. That means that you can be both a "blended learning" Training Provider and a "full day classroom" Training Provider at the same time. Why not offer your clients both and let them decide which method best suits them?
WAH Train-the-Trainer course refunds requested within 30 days of the purchase date and at least 5 business days prior to the scheduled classroom training will be honoured in full.
Late or No Show Trainees
Trainees who do not attend the full 2 days of scheduled Train-the-Trainer course, or who are more than 30 minutes late to either day, will not be eligible for any refund.
Rescheduling of Train-the-Trainer classes will be honoured for requests made at least 5 business days prior to the scheduled classroom course. Rescheduling is limited to the available dates, times and locations offered by YOW Canada.
Cancellation by YOW Canada
YOW Canada reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a Train-the-Trainer course in the event of low enrollment or due to circumstances beyond our control. Trainees will be notified accordingly with a minimum of 2 days notice.
The Training Provider Application is a five step process that is best described by the following MOL document:
Using YOW's Train-the-Trainer course you will move directly to Step 3: The Field Assessment.
Yes. YOW Canada spent a number of months working with the MOL to get this course approved so you will not have any problems moving past the Desk Assessment. After submitting your Training Provider Application, the first time you hear from the MOL will be to schedule the Field Assessment. If the MOL contacts you with questions during the Desk Assessment, YOW will work with the MOL to get them resolved.
The MOL takes a lot of time and care during the Field Assessment to ensure Trainers are able to effectively deliver the WAH course. Trainers must ensure they are properly prepared for the assessment. We help you prepare by giving you Field Assessment tips and guidelines based on our own experience, discussions with the MOL, and having helped multiple trainers through this process. Our goal is to help you get through the application process and to be a good Trainer which is why we assign you an Assessment Coach that is available to provide you the support you need.
The Training Provider prerequisites are best described on the following MOL documents:
Trainers will also be required to successfully complete Part 1: Basic Theory of YOW's WAH Blended Learning course. Trainers choosing to be Connections Trainers must also complete YOW's Workplace Violence and Harassment course before they can deliver training to Connections Learners. We believe Trainers must understand these topics to be an effective Trainer and to create a safe environment for Learners. These courses will be made available to eligible Trainers at no charge.
This will depend on a number of factors including who your assessor is; how many applications are before yours in the queue, how your Field Assessment goes, etc. On average you can expect it to take approximately 12 weeks from the time of submitting your application until you are able to deliver WAH training.
Your Train-the-Trainer instructor will also be your Assessment Coach - they will be available to support you at any time before or after the course.
From the WAH Trainer Dashboard click on a Part 2 classroom date to view the 'Classroom Details'. From here you can fill in the Instructor/Evaluator names, view the trainees assigned to that classroom date, assign final classroom score to the trainees and view the required MOL documents. Clicking on the document link will open it in a new window and the required information is filled in automatically.
Before the Part 2 class you should print the 'Classroom sign-in sheet' and the 'Notice of Disclosure' documents. The 'Classroom Sign-in sheet' will have each trainee who completed Part 1 online and each trainee who completed Part 1 will have a 'Notice of Disclosure' form page. Before beginning the Part 2 class have each trainee sign the 'Sign-in Sheet' and verify the information and sign the Notice of Disclosure' sheet.
After you complete the Part 2 training you will assess each trainee and assign them a score. Fill in each trainee's score on the 'Classroom Details' page and click submit. Once all trainees have their assigned score open the 'MOL approved training list' document and print it off. Finally open the 'MOL approved training list electronic document' and save it to a USB stick. All of the printed documents and the USB stick with the electronic document will need to then be sent to the MOL:
Ministry of Labour Health & Safety Contact Centre: 1-877-202-0008 (toll free)
Health and Safety Program Administration and Certification Unit
12th floor, 400 University Avenue
Toronto, ON M7A 1T7.
If you are unable to teach one of your scheduled Part 2 classrooms it is up to you to notify your trainees and to re-schedule Part 2 training dates for them.
You can delete the Scheduled date by going to the WAH Training Dashboard and view the 'Classroom Details' page for the specific date and then click 'delete date'.
You can then reassign the trainees to a new date. Once the Part 2 date has been deleted the previously assigned trainees will show on the 'Trainee List' page under 'Trainees with No Date' section. Clicking on a trainee's name will allow you to assign that trainee to a different date.
YOW Connections Classes are Part 2 classroom dates set up by YOW Canada but taught by an independent trainer. Trainers will receive $400 per Connections class that they teach. YOW manages the marketing, registration and payment of Learners, booking the training venue, Part 1 online training delivery, answering questions, etc.
Trainers that have taken YOW's Train-the-Trainer course, have received CPO approval and have chosen to be Connections Trainers will see the list of available Connections classrooms in their "WAH Trainer Dashboard". If Trainers find a WAH course at a location, date and time they are available, they can contact YOW to assume 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 MOL paperwork, the Trainer invoices YOW for $400 and is paid within 30 days.
YOW Canada's offices are located in Ottawa, Ontario and Y-O-W are the international call letters for the Ottawa Airport. Plus, we think it's a catchy name that's easy to remember.
