The RTR curriculum is intended to supplement preexisting sexual education programming, and it is typically presented by specially trained school-system teachers over a three-week period as part of a family life or a general health education program. RTR is implemented by regular classroom teachers who have attended a one- to four-day training session. Classes should be taught 23 times per week. The classes should be taught so that most youth attend most classes. All 16 classes should be taught. All classes should be taught in sequence. Classes should last at least 45 minutes. The ideal class size is between 10 and 30 youth. Educators for the Reducing the Risk curriculum should be familiar with the Reducing the Risk content, comfortable discussing the material, and experienced in teaching a skills-based program. If the curriculum is implemented in a school setting, appropriate approval should be obtained from the school and parents. If implemented in a non-school setting, appropriate approval should be obtained from the host organization and parents, and steps necessary to successfully recruit youth should be implemented. The educators should be adequately trained and experienced in order to teach the content, to implement the interactive activities.
