Thirty-one DECA advisors and associates earned certification as DECA trainers at the inaugural DECA Train-the-Trainer Certification Course held June 10-12, 2010, at DECA Inc. headquarters in Reston, Va. The certified trainers are charged to deliver professional development on behalf of DECA during the 2010-2011 academic year.
DECA’s education department designed the certification program to train key leaders of state/provincial associations to effectively deliver presentations and content useful to DECA local chapter advisors.
“Our goal is to build a network of qualified trainers who can deliver quality and consistent professional development to fellow DECA advisors in their states or regions,” said Ed Davis, Ed.D., executive director of DECA Inc. “As our number of new chapters and new advisors continues to increase, our priority is to equip our new professionals with the skills and resources necessary to develop the most effective instructional programs for their students.”
Eight unique workshops that can be delivered in a variety of formats at local and state professional development conferences or events were presented. As part of the certification program, the trainers created a state professional development plan to implement during the upcoming academic year.
Certified Trainers for 2010-2011 are:
