Organize a Training

There are three parts to organizing a successful QPR training

1) Plan Logistics

  • Set a date/ time that works for your team (have a few options to ensure a facilitator will be available)
  • QPR is a 2 hour training session so ensure your group is available for the full time
  • Request a facilitator (this must be done at least 4 weeks in advance of your anticipated training date/time)
  • Book a room
    • Requirements: whiteboard, projector and possibly laptop
  • Material costs: Each QPR Training participant in your workshop will receive a resource package, which consists of one referral card and one reference booklet. These QPR materials are $5.50 (no tax) per participant, and you will be asked to pay via Journal Voucher.
  • Material Pick Up & Payment: Once your facilitator is confirmed, the Wellness Centre will connect with you about payment for the materials and pick up the necessary training materials in advance of your session.  Email with any questions you have about materials.


2) On the Day of the Training, the Organizer is expected to:

  • Meet facilitator in advance (the facilitator may also email you in advance to determine group needs and room details)
  • Bring and help distribute the materials and surveys
  • Help with any technology needs
  • Organizer should stay for the training to contextualize any questions the participants might have


3) The Organizer can expect the Facilitator to:

  • Arrive early on the training day to connect with the organizer
  • Facilitate an effective QPR session
  • Administer surveys and sign completion certificates at the end of the training session
