How The Courses Work

We would advise that the courses in each curriculum series be taken consecutively in numerical order. All of the assignments and curriculum in the Community & Workplace program rely on an amalgamation of constituents from all previous CWT courses.

This learning process offers participants the chance to amalgamate their knowledge into a coherent model for appropriate post-trauma intervention.

This whole program provides the chance for studying through online exercises, assignments and unit quizzes but are created mainly for your education and are not submitted for grading. The Traumatology Institute’s staff will grade assignments from the final Supervision course in the CWT series (TI-106) on a pass/fail basis only. These submissions, in addition to the successful completion of core curriculum, will satisfy the requirements of the program.

Each course necessitates the successful completion of a Final Quiz. To pass the quiz, your grade must be above 80%. After completing all of the courses in this stream there will be a Certificate of Completion made available on the E-learning site.

Our certification is supplied via the Traumatology Institute. If you are seeking additional international certification, you can apply through the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress (AAETS) and Green Cross Academy of Traumatology in the U.S. Both organizations recognize our training and provide advanced certification.
