Level 1 offers Positive Education Certified (PEC) practitioners a deeper training in the key elements of Positive Education: mindset, resilience and character strengths. Trainers will learn to facilitate 4 half-day training experiences (with bonus 1-hour and 2-hour versions) for teachers and staff and begin to activate a whole-school Positive Education philosophy.

*Prerequisite: PEC

Level 2 is designed for those Positive Educators looking to help regional schools and organizations by planning and executing the PEC Program. Practitioners will be licensed to provide in-person training to teachers, along with use of the curriculum and supporting materials. Practitioners will become part of the Center for Positive Education team on our website and be supported in the successful implementation of PEC in their districts.

Self-paced modules available by application

The PECT Level 1 training was a phenomenal experience. Our group of like-minded professionals very quickly came together as a collaborative support network for one another. The course walked us through four experiential workshops, each a foundational piece of positive psychology. Educators will come away with key well-being skills to embed within their classroom, as well as their personal life. The applications for this information is immeasurable. Thank you, Emiliya, Renee, and Tamara for a wonderful and truly valuable experience.

Sandy Brower, M. Ed., CAPP, PEC, CB3RT Positive Psychology Practitioner

After finishing the PEC program, I was pleased to see the PECT classes. I really wanted to be able to share what I had learned with parents and staff and I now have an important and practical toolbox to give 4 different workshops (of 1 hour, 2 hours, or 4 hours). This is so important for our community, particularly now. Thanks to the Center for offering this new course!

Elementary Principal

PECT Level 1 equipped me with an abundance of knowledge, resources, and skills that increased my confidence and motivation to pursue positive education. But, most importantly, PECT welcomed me into a community of changemakers and kindled connections that will last far beyond the time we spent together in training.
