SSPNJ Training Program

Module 1, the Group Training Seminar, is an interactive, small-group learning and sharing experience that includes hands-on activities and philosophical discussions. This seminar provides in-depth exposure to the role of the SSP. Approximate training time for Module 1: 4- 5 hours

Module 2 is a 1:1 training experience. You are teamed up with a trainer, and you begin using the skills you’ll need to work effectively as an SSP. You’ll meet at an agreed-upon location in the community, and you’ll focus on getting around safely and effectively in the environment. Approximate training time for Module 2: 2 hours

Module 3 offers another opportunity to work 1:1, but this time you’re working with a deafblind trainer in a community setting. There is compensation for this module only. Approximate training time for Module 3: 3 hours
