Why Play Training?

While play can be seemingly chaotic or frivolous there is a need to understand the dynamic processes at work. Play Training gives us the tools to elevate player experiences, provide safe and nurturing learning environments, and meet progressive developmental objectives.

Upon the completion of Level 1: Foundations Training, participants gain skills that can be taken back to their work/volunteer spaces. Play training alone is great for teachers, programmers, learning assistants, managers, business owners, health care providers and many more. Additionally, once an individual completes Foundations Training, they can be employed by a Regional License Owner as a Level 1 Play Associate.  However, it is only once an individual completes Level 1: Foundations Training, Level 2: Trained Training, and Level 3: Certified that they are certified as Level 3 Play Associates and can be employed by a Regional Licence Owner.
