All trainers certified to deliver TN KEY must deliver at least one TN KEY group within six months of initial certification and provide copies of sign-in sheets to the Office of Training and Professional Development. Thereafter, trainers must deliver at least one group annually to maintain certification. Trainers will also be required to attend any curriculum update T4Ts as they are made available by the Office of Training and Professional Development.
