Abstract

This study evaluates a two-day train the trainer program designed to provide instructors from diverse backgrounds with the tools needed to teach financial literacy to individual debtors. Trained teachers reported satisfaction with their training and felt prepared to teach; they also provided constructive feedback. Pre- and posttest questionnaires reveal a 9% increase in financial knowledge and positive changes in attitude. Observations reveal that skills learned in training transferred to desired teaching behavior in the classroom. This paper addresses the implications of our findings for both the training literature and the implementation and operation of the recently passed 2005 bankruptcy legislation.
