Prospective Trainers & Producers
If you are interested in becoming a trainer and/or producer, email OUCCAS Recruitment at OUCCASrecruits@ucmail.uc.edu. Include your expertise and your interest. The need for trainers and producers is based on the learning needs of the counties. If it appears that you meet the qualifications to become an OHSTS trainer and your area of expertise will meet a need of our program, you will begin the approval process.
Trainers in the OHSTS may train both standardized curriculum (required trainings for adult protective services (APS) caseworkers and supervisors) and specialized curriculum. Standardized curriculum topics include the aging process, assessing risk, voluntary and involuntary case planning, and working with the criminal justice system. Trainers also train on specialized topics such as mental health, trauma, the aging process, self-neglect, substance abuse, and other topics that relate to APS. These trainers develop their own curriculum and training outlines. Trainers can be approved to train in–person, virtually, and/or both.
The role of the producer is the support person for the trainer when the training is virtual. The producer is an invaluable resource before, during and after a virtual training event. He or she is there to support the facilitator, the participants and the technology. The producer makes the session run smoothly, troubleshooting technical issues for anyone attending the session, loading polls and even co–facilitating content.
