NRA Refuse to be a Victim Instructor Development Workshop

Women and men interested in becoming Refuse To Be A Victim® instructors must attend a one- to two-day Instructor Development Workshop (IDW) or complete the Online Instructor Training course.

Instructor Development Workshops are taught by Regional Counselors and begin with a Refuse To Be A Victim® Seminar. The workshop then concentrates on technical aspects of the program, instructor expectations, certification guidelines, developing speaking techniques and presentation skills, marketing seminars, etc.

Once certified, instructors are encouraged to schedule seminars in their communities for organizations, community groups, and companies, both proactively and in response to direct requests.
