You already know that an adult’s learning style is different than a child’s, and training based on theories and lectures is not the most effective approach for delivering programs. But how do you actually develop your training around the principles of adult learning?
Train the Trainer: Planning, Designing & Evaluating Training helps you make your own training programs more effective using proven approaches for adult learning. This program focuses on helping you with your specific content and audiences and how to combine them in a way that creates an engaging program. The result? A positive, memorable learning experience and lasting impact for you and your participants in your training programs.

Train the Trainer: Planning, Designing & Evaluating Training helps you to develop a new, more energized and more effective classroom learning experience. You’ll learn how to save time and money during the design process. And more importantly, you’ll add to, modify and edit one of your existing training programs so that it becomes a more learner-focused and results-oriented training design, and serves as a model for other training programs you develop.
Train the Trainer: Planning, Designing & Evaluating Training is the second session in our popular Train the Trainer Series Certificate Program. This program can be taken as standalone class, but to have the most impact, we encourage individuals to take the entire Train the Trainer Series – How Adults Learn; Planning, Designing and Evaluating Training; and Proven Classroom Training Techniques.
If you are a training facilitator you will sharpen your delivery skills and develop new instructional techniques. If you are a training developer, this session will help you design programs that meet the needs of the facilitator as well as the learners.
