RW Instructor™ Certificate

Facilitating Transformative Group Studies

Purpose: RW Instructors are trained to facilitate video-based group studies on relational wisdom and peacemaking through Sunday school classes and small group studies. Instructor training is designed to improve your ability to facilitate both faith-based and values-based study groups by leading interactive discussions, asking insightful questions and assisting people in learning how to apply these concepts in their daily lives. You will also learn how to use the RW360 smartphone app and other RW resources as witnessing tools to share your faith with others.

Cost: $95 | Study: 16 hours | Application: 20 hours | Total Time: 36 hours

Prerequisites: (1) Facilitate a Discovering Relational Wisdom Group Study; and (2) Facilitate a Relational Peacemaking Group Study (scheduled for release in July of 2022).

Simultaneous Training: You may earn an RW Instructor Certificate (without paying the $95 application fee) by completing the requirements for an RW Shepherd Certificate.
