How Training Works

  • A standardized curriculum for both the Grand-Aide and supervisor has been developed over 5 years.
    • The curriculum is then tailored to the degree of experience of the Grand-Aides.
    • 50% of the curriculum is web-based; the other 50% requires in-erson role-playing that can be in-person or by video.
  • Grand-Aides USA provides input in the choice of supervisor and Grand-Aides.

    • Supervisor training 3 days.
