But first: WHAT IS JCI – JUNIOR CHAMBER INTERNATIONAL (WWW.JCI.CC)
JCI is a worldwide community of young active citizens ages 18-40 who share the belief that in order to create positive change, we must take collective action to improve ourselves and the world around us. With over 5,000 Local Organizations in more than 115 countries and territories, JCI forms a vibrant international network with nearly 200,000 members. Engaging in activities ranging from community development to international projects, members demonstrate their social responsibility and improve themselves through participation, leadership and action. The global citizens of JCI are committed to becoming better leaders to build a better future for all.
And for us trainers in JCI we have a guide to follow and a certification program. Maybe the only one in Europe.
For the trainers:
To guide trainers along the path of excellence, JCI Training has established a Certification Program – a road map to achievement in the field of training. The program provides incentives and opportunities for members to improve their technical skills through specialized training, career development programs, and active participation in training efforts in the field.
JCI members are encouraged to seek advanced certification after successfully completing the JCI Trainer course.
The first step is to acquire the necessary presentation skills by attending JCI Presenter. With newly learned presentation skills, JCI Trainers are equipped to offer their local organizations a wide range of training sessions available from JCI.
A JCI Trainer seeking admission to level 1 – Certified Local Trainer (CLT) – is required to:
* After graduating from JCI Trainer (Prime), complete 25 hours of training in courses organized by JCI Local or National Organizations.
CLTs will continue conducting training at the local level or higher until they complete the total hours to attend a JCI Designer course.
A CLT seeking certification at level 2 – Certified National Trainer (CNT) – is required to:
A. After becoming a CLT, conduct 25 additional hours of training. A minimum of 20 hours must be conducted in courses organized by JCI Local or National Organizations officially affiliated to JCI and recorded in JCI database and having JCI members as participants. 5 hours of training outside JCI is accepted.
C. After fulfilling item A, attend and graduate from a JCI Designer course.
CNTs have the opportunity to make even more meaningful contributions to JCI by providing regional and national training, and developing new training courses.
