Contracted Faculty

Regardless of the level of expertise and experience of our team, the TTA full-time team is not always able to accommodate every request. 

As a means to create additional capacity and to keep a broad spectrum of topics available, the TTA contracts with various experts from across the country who have skillsets specific to certain practices or concepts. When necessary these individuals are called upon to handle various training requests or even assist us in conducting program fidelity or system reviews and evaluations. We are always open to adding to this faculty with quality, proven experts. 

If you would like to be considered as a contracted member of our faculty, please contact our Director, Wally Czech, stating your interest including a description of your experience, area of expertise, and if possible, examples of your work. 

How It Works!

Outside trainers can be contracted in two ways:

Contract with the Trainer Personally

We would establish with the interested individual an agreement between the TTA and them personally, which would include a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) describing how they are not bound to commit to any training requests unless it fit with their schedule. It would outline how the pay works and what the expectations would be if a training assignment was accepted. 


  • trainer gains valuable experience and opportunities
  • trainer receives payment for their assignments and can manage their time accordingly
  • employer may have concerns with involvement due to concerns regarding distraction from their employment role


  • trainers usually have other jobs which would often require them to take personal or vacation time to fulfill assignments

Contract with the Trainer’s Employer

Sometimes, because it is challenging to take personal or vacation time to accept assignments, it is easier for a trainer to have us contract with their employer. This would mean the employer then would be providing the approval for the trainer to accept an assignment but the payment for completing the assignment would be sent to the employer instead of the trainer. 


  • trainer would not have to lose vacation or personal time to complete assignments
  • trainer’s employer would be supportive of the trainer’s involvement
  • trainer gains valuable experience and opportunities


  • trainer would not be paid for the assignment unless the employer chose to offer some type of compensation. One example of this is the funds being put aside for trainer PD.
