PMPEI Train-the-Trainer Class

A “Train-the-Trainer” class is scheduled for new instructors to teach the PMPEI Course in Zoning. Train-the-Trainer is PMPEI’s way of preparing instructors to teach PMPEI courses by equipping them with an in-depth knowledge of the course content to ensure it will be taught consistently throughout the Commonwealth. Principles of adult education, program procedures, and presentation delivery are also part of the training.

The dates for the three-day intensive training program are Friday and Saturday, May 19 and 20, 2017, and Saturday, June 3, 2017.  It will be held at the Centre Region Council of Governments Building in State College, PA. The registration fee is $150 and covers instruction, materials, all breaks, lunches, and a Friday night meal. Trainees are responsible for their transportation and lodging.

PMPEI instructors receive compensation for teaching, travel, plus meal expenses. Teaching assignments are made so instructors will be teaching close to where they live.

Citizen and professional planners, and allied professionals, with a minimum of five years’ experience in planning and zoning in Pennsylvania are eligible to become PMPEI Certified Instructors. If you are committed to planning education and would like to become a Certified Instructor the deadline for applying for The Course in Zoning training is May 5, 2017.

For an application, or more information about PMPEI and the training, contact Stanford Lembeck, AICP, (814) 237-2382, or email slembeck34@gmail.com.

Certification Maintenance (CM) credit may be available for AICP members attending the training (pending approval).
