Hosting a Prime For Life® Training with Prevention Research Institute (PRI)

PRI requests a 3-6-month notice for scheduling a training. This allows sufficient time to promote the training and for participants to make travel and work plans. PRI reserves the right to cancel the scheduled training 30 days in advance if the minimum number of participants is not met. Training days are intense and generally run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and include homework. We suggest participants plan for some protected time in the evening to prepare for the next day. Because the training is a building process, participants are required to attend the entire training. All continuing education hours are NAADAC approved.

Prime For Life New Instructor Training

Tuition for the Prime For Life New Instructor Training is $895*. Tuition includes the 2-day training, instructor e-manual, participant workbook, instructor workbook (online), and a link to download the Prime For Life Presentation Application. Continuing education hours are awarded for the training. We require at least four attendees to schedule.

Tuition for the Prime For Life New Instructor Training is $500 for Department of Defense attendees.

Additional Information

For all PRI trainings, tuition does not include participant travel, lodging, or meal expenses. With fewer than 15 Prime For Life training participants, the hosting organization should budget $3,000 for the travel expenses of the PRI staff (round trip air fare/mileage, hotel, meals, and rental car). With 15 or more Prime For Life participants, PRI will pay PRI staff travel expenses.

PRI staff is available to assist the training host in designing promotional materials and coordinating registration for the training. The registration deadline is typically three weeks prior to the training. Payment can be made at the time of registration via check, purchase order, or credit card. PRI accepts American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. If full payment is not included with registration, payment arrangements must be made prior to the first day of the training. A non-refundable registration fee of $100.00 will be invoiced if a training registrant does not cancel within 14 days of the training event.

PRI will ship all training materials to the site one week prior to the event: A shipping address is needed at least two weeks in advance. The materials need to be made available for set up the evening prior to the training.

PRI requests a complete list of training participants at least four weeks in advance, including names, mailing addresses, email addresses, and telephone numbers.

The following are the logistical requests for the trainings;

  • Projection screen or large monitor compatible for computer connection.
  • Small table or AV cart on wheels for computer and projector.
  • Extension cords with power strips.
  • Flipchart with assorted colored markers.
  • Carpeted, quiet room with outside windows, individual heating/lighting controls preferred so at times some of the lights can be turned off.
  • The room needs to be accessible the evening before the training for set-up and locked each evening. Arrangements should be made and confirmed that the room is not available to other groups during evening hours so that training materials will not be disturbed.
  • Large round tables to comfortably accommodate five people; all five chairs should face the front of the room.
  • Two rectangular tables to the side for trainer materials.
  • Two high stools for the trainers.
  • Suggested morning snacks available at 8:45 a.m.: coffee, tea, and decaf (available all day), juices, muffins, bagels, fruit, or yogurt.
  • Suggested afternoon snacks available around 2:15 p.m.: soft drinks, fruit tray, veggie platter, popcorn, pretzels, or crackers and cheese. We try to minimize high fat/sugar snacks.

Alternatively, with more than 15 registrations PRI can secure local meeting space in coordination with the host.

Participant Workbooks

An on-going requirement, providers agree to purchase a new workbook for each participant in a Prime For Life group. The workbooks are an integral component of the course and serve three purposes: (1) as a summary of all the important information in the program; (2) the application of exercises and activities completed by the participants in group; and (3) as a reference resource book for the participant after the program completion.
