Level 1-The Practical Trainer

People who work as trainers are often put into difficult situations with limited understanding of what training is or how to do it well.  We know that being a good trainer is the result of developing skills to bring information to an audience.  Done well, this information should engage, empower and encourage continued learning.  This two-day course will give you the skills that you need so that your students not only learn, but also enjoy the process, retain information shared, and use their new skills back in the workplace.
