Question: "I'm located in ________________. How much would it be for me to be certified to join your organization? Would I have to go on tour with the group? Am I allowed to put together homebrewed content if it will be a beneficial experience for the game groups? Do I have to fill out an application?

Answer

RPG Research is a 501(c)3 non-profit research and human services charitable organization. We are 100% volunteer run. We provide training for free to volunteers (donations still very much appreciated (needed!)). To join as a volunteer, simply fill out the application on Indeed.com for the primary positions you are interested in. You are interested in multiple roles, during the 2nd step of the application, you will be able to select as many roles are you are interested in gaining training in. https://www.indeedjobs.com/rpg-research/jobs

We are over #60 in our list of volunteers. About half are in the greater Spokane, WA area, but the other half are scattered across 5 continents! You can learn remotely, and then we can coach you through putting together programs in your region.

We use often homebrewed content too, but there is a lengthy evaluation process we highly recommend, which you would learn as part of your training. We do recommend sticking with publicly available, in-print game systems, so that if your players get excited and want to run the game with their own group, they can easily do so. But having a homebrew system is not as much of a problem as a homebrew system.

If you want professional training, online or directly, at a billable rate, or bundles, you would need to contact RPG Therapeutics LLC. They offer paid consulting, mentoring, training, and other professional services. RPG Research is focused on research and community programs, not professional services.

RPG Research just has training diplomas. If you want to be certified, you need to talk to RPG Therapeutics LLC. If you want to make a living as an RPG Professional, you will want to talk to RPG Therapeutics LLC when you meet their stringent qualifications as per their job descriptions. Our training is applicable toward qualifying.
