The EQL Training Approach
EQL Experts. EQL capitalizes on the skills and expertise of professionals in the health promotion and disease prevention arena to train and implement the workshops it conducts. These experts typically have advanced degrees in a plethora of health and human service related areas and participate in a certification process using the evidence based curriculum selected for the community in need to insure content mastery. In turn, EQL Experts help to adapt curriculum to reflect the community to be served, train and monitor the implementation of the curriculum by EQL Instructors, Advocates and Navigators.
