Train the Trainer

Course overview

Most organisations are endowed with trainers that are great, but they do not have the knowhow of the specific job skills. On the other hand, they also have staff which is experienced in job skills, but they do not know how to do the training effectively. Such a scenario poses a one of the most common training dilemmas, leaving organisations wondering what to do. Usually the best alternative is to train the job experts on how to train others; popularly known as “train the trainer.” This is argued to be the most effective way to get the best of both worlds: content expertise and training knowhow. This Train the Trainer Course is highly effective and designed for individuals who need to develop their training and facilitation skills, and confidence to teach adults in the workplace. The training is interactive, ensuring that delegates are equipped with modern day training techniques which they can customise for their specific workplace requirements.
