3-5-7 Model® Internal Trainer Certification

Home / 3-5-7 Model® Internal Trainer Certification

Recognizing that organizations have an interest in building internal capacity for ongoing training on The 3-5-7 Model®, Darla L. Henry & Associates has created The 3-5-7 MODEL® INTERNAL TRAINER CERTIFICATION (ITC) program. The ITC program is comprehensive, requiring a commitment by the organization and individual trainer staff. Candidates become certified by attending training and actively participating in the training, coaching and application process. Participation in the program ensures fidelity to the core concepts and practices of The 3-5-7 Model®.  Agencies with staff who complete the ITC program are recognized Internal Trainer
Certified agencies.

PREREQUISITES (selection & enrollment)

Candidate responsibilities:

For those candidates who wish to complete the certification process, the following is required:

Candidates will be mentored, coached and evaluated during this process towards clarification and integration of The 3-5-7 Model® concepts so that they might actualize their readiness to be certified for training on The 3-5-7 Model®. A determination will be made at the end of the program if a candidate meets all necessary requirements for certification. If certification is not granted, additional steps will be identified to achieve this status as a certified internal trainer.

Organizations will receive a license to train on The 3-5-7 Model® within their agreed upon agency for a period of one year. Re-authorization for licensure renewal will be reviewed on an annual basis to ascertain training to the fidelity of The 3-5-7 Model® practice approach and for approval to continue training within the sponsor agency.


This certification provides a limited license that will permit an individual to ONLY train employees within the sponsoring organization.  Training on The 3-5-7 Model® outside of the sponsor agency or to persons who are not direct employees of the sponsor agency
is not permitted.  If a staff person ends employment with the sponsoring organization that staff person is not permitted to train at another organization without written permission by Darla L. Henry & Associates.


Darla L. Henry & Associates will provide coaching and consultation to those Internal Certified Trainers throughout their provision of training The 3-5-7 Model® programs. In addition, access will be given to new/updated materials and tools.


Ongoing certification is good for one year and renewable for two years before additional consultation/training is required.
