Training for DUI Instructors for DHH Communities
Below is a copy of an email from Michelle Niehaus.
In an effort to expand the services available to Deaf or Hard of Hearing individuals in their preferred mode of communication, the Department is working to recruit Deaf or Hard of Hearing trainers to do the Prime for Life curriculum required of individuals with DUIs. This three day training will be provided free of charge and will prepare those who pass the certification test to deliver the curriculum in ASL or the individual's best language. Trainers generally charge $200-300 per 20 hour session.
Training dates for 2014 are February 4th-6th, May 6th-8th, and October 7th-9th. Each will take place in Lexington.
More information about the curriculum can be found on their Web site.
Please complete the application form it and return it to Michelle.Niehaus@ky.gov or to my attention at (502) 564-9010. All applicants must have a bachelor's degree to be eligible. We would like to have trainers representing each region of the state if possible.
