The main body of the handbook is divided into three sections.

It is divided into these topics: deciding to do cross-training, selecting partners, assessing the need, selecting activities, recording information, and training staff. Section 2, Conducting the Project Activities, explains the implementation of activities in a cross-training project. It includes these topics: kick-off activities, community planning, centralized activities, and supporting networking. Each topic has two sections.
