Who are T3 Trainers?
T3 Trainers are school nurses, early childhood professionals, community health nurses, health aides and others who have completed an application and training process to teach particular topics in health, safety and screening of hearing.

They may be independent consultants and utilize the training for that purpose or may use the training as part of their current employment.

What is the curriculum?
The T3 curriculum has been developed by experts in the fields of health, safety, screening and adult learning. Trainers receive instruction in Adult Learning Principles and the topic(s) for which they wish to become approved trainers. Over 50 hours of training has been developed. The training is based on Academy of Pediatrics, American Public Health Association and Arizona Office of Child Care Licensure recommendations and standards. All training modules are highly interactive and are updated on a regular basis. These modules meet the Arizona Department of Health Services standards for child care licensing and sensory programs.
