HR Competencies

  • Critical Evaluation
  • Communication


Do you know the difference between doing a presentation or doing a training? What are best practices in designing and delivering adult-based training? How can you tell if your training has any impact? If you struggled around any of these questions and are responsible for training in your organization, you might want to consider Train the Trainer. This class provides participants with comprehensive techniques to train groups of three or more. The focus of the class is on principles of adult learning and the training cycle, including: a) diagnosing, b) designing, c) delivering, and d) evaluating training programs. Participants develop and deliver a 15-minute training program during class on the third day, which is recorded and given to the trainer. Participants may wish to bring a training program that is under development to class.
