Pyramid Plus Trainer and Coach Certification

Pyramid Plus Trainer and Coach Certification

The Pyramid Plus Approach and Pyramid Plus Trainer and Coach Certification includes research based theory and strategies to develop positive, productive, and effective adult relationships.  Certification is an essential component of Pyramid Plus scale-up and sustainability of evidence-based, early childhood social emotional and inclusive practices. Certification to become either a trainer or coach is a one year process in which candidates receive ongoing technical assistance from a Pyramid Plus Center staff member. 

Pyramid Plus certifies trainers and coaches throughout Colorado in order to ensure high fidelity implementation of the Pyramid Plus Approach.  This rigorous process requires candidates for certification to participate in multiple-day training events, develop their own professional development plans, participate in distance training events, submit videos of coaching and training, and submit consumer evaluations.
