OMA Fully Online Facilitator Training

**Due to COVID-19, ALL OMA Facilitator Training will be fully online in 2020**

The fully online training consists of three parts:

Part 1: Methodology Training: 12-15 hours completed within 4 weeks at your own pace with weekly live check-in sessions.

Part 2: Art Making: These are live online sessions with OMA staff on the scheduled dates and times below

Part 3: Observation & Debriefing: Trainees schedule a web meeting with OMA staff where trainees conduct a mini OMA session and are virtually observed by OMA staff. After the observation, trainees and OMA staff engage in an online debriefing discussion. Dates and times will be determined individually.

*Completion of all three sessions is required to become a certified OMA Facilitator.
