Advanced Skills for the Practical Trainer

Price: $ 59.95+GST

Behind every spectacular training session is a lot of preparation and meticulous attention to detail. The truly skilled trainer can make a program exciting! This course will teach you advanced skills that can help you take your training programs to the next level. We recommend that you complete The Practical Trainer before beginning this course.

To begin, you will explore the trainers role and what skills and competencies trainers should have. Then you will learn about the learning process and different learning styles, and apply that knowledge to designing programs and motivating learners. You will also learn ways to manage the stress of training, plan a workshop, and lead a training session. Then, you will learn techniques for dealing with difficult participants, evaluating learning, and conducting on-the-job follow-up. Alternative training methods, such as eLearning, co-facilitation, and team teaching will also be covered.
