They will also be trained in the use of the approved materials within the defined structure curriculum. The second step is an accreditation process where the CDE is observed delivering an Empower T2i session to clients by a CDE Empower T2i Coordinator to ensure the CDE achieves the level required to be endorsed as an Empower T2i Trainer within the competency framework. The CDE will receive written feedback and discussion of any necessary improvements to be made following the observed session.
