The training of trainers courses are held every 1-3 years within the region alternating between English and Spanish speaking locations taught in the language of the host country (one short version was imparted in French in Guadeloupe on 2011). Individuals selected for the course are required to develop follow-up training activities within their home countries, whose proposals are reviewed collectively during the regional course. Each country receives a small grant to support the local activity with a view to facilitate the multiplying effect of the training of trainers. The following courses were implemented: 1999, 2010 and 2016 (in Dominican Republic), 2002 (in St. Lucia), 2004 and 2006 (in the Florida Keys, USA), 2007 (in Quintana Roo, Mexico), 2009 (in Tobago Island, Trinidad and Tobago), 2011 (in Belize), 2011 (in Guadeloupe), 2015 (in Grenada).
Every 1 to 3 years
