How Are We Different?
There is a great deal of competition in the online training market, but Engage with® Skills Training Programs stand head and shoulders above the rest. What makes us different is what makes us better…
Fully Immersive Digital Environment
Fully immersive environment using an innovative, multi-user gamification approach to live virtual training. This includes videos, quizzes, games and small group interactions, all designed to inform and engage using real-time interaction.
Engage with® Skills Trainings have a proven, evidence-base and verified efficacy. A two-year evaluation from the University of Maryland revealed lowered staff turnover, improved staff satisfaction and created positive changes in behavior related to staff interactions with older adults.
Live instruction by Licensed Clinical Instructors
From start to finish, Engage with® Skills Trainings are led by licensed professionals who are experienced and talented teachers with strong clinical backgrounds. There is no self-directed pre-work or homework to worry about or track—just a self-contained, immersive online experience.
Many instructor-led training programs require an organization to train their own people as instructors first, who in turn then train staff in various curricula. This process can take months, requires a dedicated staff person to teach a specific curriculum and needs to be replicated if that staff person leaves. Engage with® Skills Trainings are available immediately, are conducted by Engage with® staff and there is no subscription required—you can train as few or as many staff as you wish, when you wish.
Certification from Mental Health Association of Maryland (MHAMD)
MHAMD is a 100 year old nonprofit agency that offers a Core Certification to those who successfully complete the 4-hour Core Skills training and an Advanced Certification to those who complete the full 14-hour training program.
Core training with topic specific supplements
Engage with® Skills Trainings consists of a 4-hour Core Skills Training that covers “what everyone needs to know,” plus five additional 2 hour supplements that go deeper into key areas, for a total of 14 hours of training available.
Pre- and post-training consultation
Included in our most popular training packages is a pre-training consultation that identifies areas of importance and sensitivity in your workforce, and adjusts your training experience accordingly. For our most robust training packages, post-training consultation is also available. As your skills training proceeds, these case conference style post-training consultations, led by a board certified psychiatrist, allow your team to explore challenging issues and gain guidance on how to apply the Engage with® principles in real time.
Training Designed to Meet your individual Needs
All participants start with the 4-hour Core Skills Training and can then add any combination of the five available 2-hour Supplements.
Following completion of the Core Skills training, there are five 2-hour supplements available which
can be “mixed and matched” to meet state/federal requirements or individual agency needs.
