Easy Steps to Becoming an Official Partner and Getting Certified Leaders and Instructors…
First, complete a program co-sponsorship agreement for your facility and return to the Arthritis Foundation.
Second, send at least one individual from your facility to be trained at a training workshop hosted by the Arthritis Foundation. Trainings are scheduled throughout the year—make sure to ask to be added to our e-newsletter list for training announcements.
Third, ensure that your trained instructors teach at least one course series (a minimum of six classes) within six months and submit a certification application form.
Fourth, after successfully completing the six classes, your instructors are qualified to be officially certified by the Arthritis Foundation. You will be responsible for submitting quarterly course statistics to the Arthritis Foundation with a simple form. Instructors will need to update certification every three years.
Fifth, continue the programs and stay in touch through our e-newsletter, a benefit of becoming an Arthritis Foundation partner.
