Instructor Development Program Workshops

Facility operations, concessions, security and human resources managers attend a two-day train-the-trainer workshop called an Instructor Development Program (IDP) in order to become a certified TEAM trainer. Currently, TEAM has over 1,200 active trainers, all full-time managers of sports and entertainment facilities.

The standard registration fee for an IDP is $700. After completing the workshop and passing the certification  test, trainers train the TEAM program to their employees. Trainers must recertify every two years.
