SPECIALTY TRAINING PROGRAMS

TRAIN-THE-TRAINER COURSE DESCRIPTION
Here’s a common training dilemma: “The trainers are great, but they don’t know our specific job skills. Our staff is experienced in job skills, but they don’t know how to train. What am I supposed to do?” The answer: train the job experts on how to train others.

This is usually called “training the trainer,” and it is an effective way to get the best of both worlds: content expertise and training know-how.
This is a 21-hour interactive course for anyone who needs to transfer knowledge and skills to others. The course can be customized to your specific needs.
