For PTC Workshop Leaders & Coordinators

Thank you for committing your expertise, talents, and time to the Powerful Tools for Caregivers program. Because of your extraordinary efforts, together we have already helped many family caregivers in Wisconsin by providing them with the tools and resources to better manage the challenges of caregiving.  We have created tools (see categories on the left) to help you initiate, promote, lead, and evaluate your Powerful Tools for Caregivers workshop in your community.


Start here by reviewing the Toolkit for Starting or Enhancing your Powerful Tools for Caregivers Program.

PTC Expands to Include Caregivers of Children with Special Needs





Below are some critical timelines for you as a Master Trainer:


1. By January 1, 2017, all PTC 2-day Class Leader Trainings must utilize the upgraded Class Leader Training Manual that incorporates both excerpts from the original 6-week class script for caregivers of adults with chronic conditions as well as excerpts from the 6-week class script tailored for caregivers of children with special needs.


2. In order to receive this updated Manual and continue to be certified as a PTC Master Trainer, you must complete an hour-long teleconference orientation call with the National PTC Office.


3. FREE Teleconference orientations for experienced PTC Master Trainers will be conducted on:

August 30, 10 a.m. PACIFIC time

September 12 & 21, 10 a.m. PACIFIC time

October 12 & 17 10 a.m. PACIFIC time

November 9, 10 a.m. PACIFIC time

December 7, 10 a.m. PACIFIC time


4. If you do not participate in a FREE orientation call by December 31, 2016, you may not conduct a PTC Class Leader training until you participate in a teleconference training for new PTC Master Trainers at a cost of $250.00.
