The program takes a hybrid approach, with online, book, and remote coach debriefing components. The online component overviews MiiWrap skills, provides opportunity for practice, and includes shadowing videos of staff doing MiiWrap to support visual learners. This is supplemented by the MiiWrap Foundations textbook. All of this is reinforced by weekly virtual coaching to review material and provide feedback on techniques used during practice.
