    The ALSO Instructor Course is designed to teach current ALSO Providers the skills and knowledge needed to effectively facilitate lectures and workstations at an ALSO Provider Course. Successful completion of this course, as well as evaluation and recommendation by an advisory faculty member, is required to become an ALSO approved instructor. 

    Current ALSO Provider status as of July 18, 2022 is required to attend this course.


    Successful completion of required online course elements is mandatory
    prior to attending the live portion of this course.
     

    Furthermore, upon successful completion of this course, learners will be designated as ALSO Instructor Candidates. Instructor Candidates are required to:

    • Be observed by an Advisory Faculty teaching in one ALSO Provider Course within 1 year of their Instructor Course date.
    • Have the Advisory Faculty of that course recommend your status be changed from ALSO Instructor Candidate to ALSO Approved Instructor.
       

    A limited number of spaces are available for individuals who complete the Instructor Course at this location to be immediately observed teaching in the ALSO Provider Course the very next day. This will expedite advancement to Approved Instructor completion status. If interested, please contact Gaylynn Butts at gbutts@aafp.org.
