Train the Trainer

This intensive and practical course will provide attendees with all the ideas, concepts, skills, tools and approaches they need to become effective trainers. Training development is an essential element of success for any organisation and providing individuals and teams with the tools and training they need is a key responsibility for managers. To help you develop these skills, we will focus on several stages of training: identification and analysis of needs, delivery of impactful training and measurement of outcomes and results achieved.

Attendees will examine, test and evaluate various methods, models and ideas and learn how to manage each and every stage of training. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to effectively train others and will have learned how to bring about positive change in the behavior, knowledge, skills, capabilities, potential and attitudes of anyone who attends their training sessions.
