TARSS trainings

Registration for the winter session of Adult Learning Module 1: Delivery Skills and Adult Learning Module 2: Design Skills is now open.

These classes help trainers meet the 12 hours of training about adult learning required for trainer approval in Minnesota. You must complete both Adult Learning Modules 1 and 2 to meet this requirement. For more information about trainer approval requirements, see the Trainer Approval Process Guide.
