To complement our Accreditation Program, two new programs were introduced
in 2004-05, and another in 2007-08.
1. Fellows of ITC are first class POWERtalk International
Trainers who excel in all forms of communication, interaction, presentation, training and evaluation ability. To become
Fellows they have been graded at 80% or better on a series of rigorous assignments in each of these areas.
Several members of Northeast Region are Fellows of ITC.
2. Certified speech contest judges are members who
have experience in judging contests in ITC and other organizations. As the final step in their certification, they were
required to judge an international competition and were then assessed on their results.
There is currently only one Certified Judge in Northeast Region - Fredericton's own Shelley Petley. Shelley served in 2005-07 as the international Coordinator of this program,
and has judged many events both inside and outside POWERtalk.
3. Certified POWERtalk Short Course trainers are
experienced members who have been trained specifically to teach the 12-hour POWERtalk short course introduced in
the fall of 2007.
Shelley and Bill Petley from Fredericton are both certified
