Training Plans

All trainees develop a training plan. New trainees will develop this document in their first year of training. Trainees who are re-enrolling will update their training plan before they enrol. Your trainer, primary trainer or supervisor can assist you in developing your plan. Other trainers may review the plan.

The following topics can be used as a guide:

  • A review of the previous plan if this is not your first training plan.
  • Your overall aim for the training, for example:
    • to learn the basics
    • to see if this a method that is for me
    • to work towards certification
    • professional development
