Putting on the perfect training session, whether that be as part of an in-house or outsourced team, requires a lot of preparation and attention to detail. The trainer will not only need to make sure that all areas of the syllabus are covered, they will also need to make the program exciting: no-one wants their eulogy to include “death by PowerPoint”.

The best way to increase involvement in a training session is to utilise your own experiences and emotions to elicit empathy from the people you are teaching. This course will help you to stimulate learner’s emotions and minds to create a better learning environment, while helping their personal growth and development.

The Association for Talent Development (ATD) is the World’s largest talent development association and they estimate that it takes 40 hours to develop each hour of training time. We will teach you effective ways to ensure your researching, writing, editing, and testing processes are easier so you can be 100% prepared.
