====Technical Training====
 
  
Technical training will prepare you to work in Guatemala by building on the skills you already have and helping you to develop new skills in a manner appropriate to the needs of the country. Peace Corps staff, Guatemalan experts, and current Volunteers conduct the training program. Training places great emphasis on learning how to transfer the skills you have to the community in which you will serve as a Volunteer.
+
==Peace Corps News==
  
Technical training will include sessions on general environmental, economic, and political situations in Guatemala and strategies for working within such a framework. You will review your technical sector’s goals and will meet with the Guatemalan agencies and organizations that invited the Peace Corps to assist them. You will be supported and evaluated by the training staff throughout the pre-service training to build the confidence and skills you will need to undertake your project activities and be a productive member of your community.

====Language Training====

''The following is automatic RSS feed of Peace Corps news for this country.''<br><rss title=on desc=off>http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&scoring=n&q=%22peace+corps%22+%22seychelles%22&output=rss|charset=UTF-8|short|date=M d</rss>
  
As a Peace Corps Volunteer, you will find that language skills are the key to personal and professional satisfaction during your service. These skills are critical to your job performance, will help you integrate into your host community, and ease your personal adaptation to the new surroundings. Therefore, language training is the heart of the training program, and you must successfully meet minimum language requirements in order to complete training and become a Volunteer.  Experienced Guatemalan language instructors teach formal language classes five days a week in small classes of four to five people. The Guatemalan language is also introduced in the health, culture, and technical components of training.

Your language training will incorporate a community-based approach. You will have classroom time and will be given assignments to work on outside of the classroom and with your host family to learn the language. Our goal is to get you to a point of basic social communication skills so that you can practice and develop language skills more thoroughly once you are at your site. Prior to swearing in as a Volunteer, you will work on strategies to continue language studies during your two years of service.
 
  
====Cross-Cultural Training====

[[Category:Country]]
As part of your pre-service training, you will live with a Guatemalan host family. This experience is designed to ease your transition into life in your site. Families have gone through an orientation conducted by Peace Corps staff to explain the purpose of the pre-service training program and to assist them in helping you adapt to living in Guatemala. Many Volunteers form strong and lasting friendships with their host families.
 
 
 
Cross-cultural and community development will be covered to help improve your skills of perception, communication, and facilitation. Topics such as community mobilization, conflict resolution, gender and development, and traditional and political structures are also addressed.
 
 
 
====Health Training====
 
 
 
During pre-service training, you will be given basic medical training and information. You are expected to practice preventive healthcare and to take responsibility for your own health by adhering to all medical policies. As a trainee, you are required to attend all medical sessions. The topics include preventive health measures and minor and major medical issues that Volunteers may encounter while in Guatemala.  Sexual health and harassment, nutrition, mental health, and safety issues are also covered.
 
 
 
====Safety Training====
 
 
 
During the safety training sessions, you will learn how to adopt a lifestyle that reduces risk in your home, at work, and during your travels. You will also learn appropriate, effective strategies for coping with unwanted attention and about your individual responsibility for promoting safety throughout your service.
 
 
 
Additional Trainings during Volunteer Service
 
 
 
In its commitment to institutionalize quality training, the Peace Corps has implemented a training system that provides trainees and Volunteers with continuous opportunities to examine their commitment to Peace Corps service while increasing their technical and cross-cultural skills. During your service, there are usually three training events. The titles and objectives for those trainings are as follows:  
 
 
 
* In-Service Training: Provides an opportunity for Volunteers to upgrade their technical, language, and project development skills while sharing their experiences and reaffirming their commitment after having served for three to six months. 
 
* Mid-Term Conference (Done in conjunction with technical sector in-service): Assists Volunteers in reviewing their first year, reassessing their personal and project objectives, and planning for their second year of service.
 
* Close of Service Conference: Prepares Volunteers for the future after Peace Corps service and to review Volunteers’ respective projects and personal experiences.
 
 
 
The key to the training system is that training events are integrated and interrelated, from the pre-departure orientation through the end of your service, and are planned, implemented, and evaluated cooperatively by the training staff, Peace Corps staff, and Volunteers.
