Who may train to administer the inventories?
Persons working with couples (eg. marriage celebrants, educators, counsellors) who already have formal training as a -
- Social Worker
- Worker trained in another relevant human resource discipline
- Lay people, who also have training in the above areas, nominated by, approved by, and supervised by and accountable to leaders of the institution (eg. clergy, pastors, priests) within which they will work. We are prepared to train such individuals and couples but they need to be selected and nominated with care. Just because they are church members and have participated in a PREPARE/ENRICH program as part of their own preparation for marriage is not a sufficient qualification. It is important to consider their knowledge and skills.
