  • A Certified YPT Champion certificate
  • A special yellow square knot loop to wear on your uniform (signifying that you are a YPT Champion)
  • A flash drive containing the materials and videos needed to conduct the in-person training

Two training sessions have been conducted in 2020 and additional sessions will be posted here as they are scheduled.
