Trainer Certification Program Clinics

TCP Clinics enable USHJA members to complete the required educational element of the Trainer Certification process. Each TCP Clinic features at least one clinician over two days who educates members on teaching skills. The number of TCP Clinics sanctioned throughout the country may be limited, and USHJA members can apply to host one of these TCP Clinics, providing the potential host agrees to meet the requirements of this program outlined in the application packet.

Auditing and TCP Educational Requirement

Those interested in attending a TCP Clinic must register with and pay auditor fees to the host. Trainers seeking credit toward the educational requirement of the Trainer Certification Program must notify the host of their intent, must attend all sessions in their entirety and must sign in and out each day of the TCP Clinic on the official form provided by the USHJA.
