What does training involve?
Instead of sitting back and listening to Dr. Brankley talk, not unlike an audiobook, your experience will be like a boot camp. Training is filled with activities to engage you in learning.
Learning will occur primarily through the completion of case studies. Five are used through the training day and 15 more are given for on-your-own practice. Struggling with these cases and subsequent discussion better mirror real life.
Section 0 - Pre-Training Videos
Foundational knowledge is the first part of any training. It is also the most boring to sit through. As a novel solution, I have converted the foundational knowledge for Static-99R into a series of 5-10 minute videos that you can watch at your leisure prior to training. You are expected to finish viewing these videos, as we will only spend about 30 minutes reviewing these concepts and allowing for questions. Some videos are explicitly labelled private, meaning they are only for paid participants.

Section 2 - Training Slides (Posted after training)
The training slides exist to support the training experience, not the reverse---with the training experience occurring so you can take notes on the slides. I recognize this is the preferred learning method for some, but I invite you to try another approach. It has been the opinion of the majority of my trainees that they are not needed in advance to have a successful training.
Section 3 - Training Cases & Scoring Forms
The five training cases used throughout the day are found here. Print them off prior to training as it will be easier to score them by hand, while interacting with the group through your computer.
Section 4 - Training Cases Answers
Posted after training, you will find detailed explanations for all training cases used throughout the day.
Section 5 - Static-99R Coding Manual (2017)
This is the single most important document provided to you in training. I recommend printing it off prior to training, and taking it to an office supply or printing store to get it bound. The document is rarely updated and used each time you score Static-99R.
Section 6 - Coding Materials
Here you will find a link to a page filled with blank copies of materials routinely used to score Static-99R.
Section 7 - Static-99R Evaluator Workbook (2021)
The evaluator workbook is used to guide your interpretation of Static-99R scores and communicating your findings with a wider audience.
Section 8 - Practice Cases & Additional Resources
Clicking this section of the binder will take you to a whole new page filled with further practice cases, research articles mentioned during training, and even a crossword!
Section 9 - Training Evaluation
At the end of the day you will be given a link to complete a three minute survey on the training. These are invaluable as a source of guidance for improving the training.
