There are three levels of DEEP™ trainers:  Senior Trainers, Lead Trainers, and Peer Educators.

Senior Trainers train Lead Trainers, Peer Educators, and community participants. Senior Trainers must have experience using the DEEP™ curriculum. Eligibility to attend the Senior Training requires professional experience and/or academic background in allied health professions. Senior Trainers include nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, doctors, and social workers.

Lead Trainers train Peer Educators, and community participants. Eligibility to attend the Lead Trainer Training requires professional experience and/or academic background in allied health professions.  Lead Trainers include nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, doctors, social workers, or community health workers or other professionals with experience in diabetes education.

Peer Educators train community participants. Peer Educators can be individuals with diabetes or community members who want to help other residents understand how to manage their diabetes and avoid complications.

Any individual who wants to teach DEEP™ workshops must be trained by a certified DEEP™ trainer.
