Links for Trainers

The EfM programme revolves around the weekly seminar sessions, led by a trained Mentor. Mentors must be certified by an EfM Trainer. The Canadian programme has five Trainers who train all of our Mentors. They represent all areas of this country and can travel a great deal in order to carry out their responsibilites.

Meet the trainers:

The Canadian Trainers met by Zoom in June of 2023 for our Bi-annual advanced Training of Trainers. We worked on new training skills and charisms, spent time with the new Director of EfM Canada and EfM Sewanee, as well as the Director of Training for EfM Sewanee. We met and worked with one of our training colleagues from the United States and trained two new Trainers for our Canadian network. Welcome Jennifer and Carol to the fold.
