Train the Trainer Short Course

Our Train the Trainer short course will enable participants to gain comprehensive knowledge and the skillset for the effective training of others.

When your staff are training others, whether it be in health and safety, quality, or following a work instruction or Standard Operating Procedure, you want to be confident the message has been understood.

With the high level of internal training happening on-site at work, companies often take good training skills and knowledge for granted.  Unfortunately, good training doesn’t just happen without efficient planning, knowledge of how adults learn and retain information, and the psychology of learning.

That’s where our Train the Trainer Short course comes in so that you can be confident in your staff’s ability to develop and grow others and further develop your organisation’s learning culture.
