GI-BMP Co-Training Opportunities

Dear Prospective GI-BMP Instructor,

After completing 3 out of the 4 steps required to become a certified instructor:

1. Attend a GI-BMP training and pass the test with a minimum score of 90%
2. Complete the registration form and meet the eligibility requirements
3. Attend the GI-BMP Instructor Training and pass the test with a minimum score of 75%

You will have one more step left! You need to co-train a GI-BMP class at least twice.

Co-training is both an evaluation period and a learning experience. It involves teaching one or more GI-BMP modules under the supervision of an experienced instructor to gain proficiency in presenting the subject matter and to become familiar with the logistics of conducting a class. .

Towards the end of this page you will find a list of some co-training opportunities. If you want to sign up, please get in touch with the respective “Event Contact.” If these classes do not meet your schedule or they are out of your area, please contact your Regional Coordinator to help you find other alternatives.
