Train the Trainer Course

Training trainers to be highly effective in developing people in the workplace and beyond

What is a Train the Trainer Course?

A train the trainer course provides the knowledge and skills needed to deliver successful training for adults.

This Train the Trainer course is designed as a ‘fundamentals’ workshop for those who require the skills to train adults, whether full time or as part of their job role. It provides basic training techniques and encourages a dynamic and flexible approach to training delivery.

You will study the key theories of learning, allowing you to better understand how people learn, retain and transfer knowledge. You will explore learners’ needs and preferences, considering how best to design and deliver training that is impactful for all.

You will explore the training cycle, a systematic approach to learning design, delivery, assessment, and evaluation.

When training the trainer, we provide instruction, coaching, and feedback to develop high impact corporate trainers, who can engage their learners, increase learning retention and bridge the gap between learning and application.

Who should take a train the trainer course?

The course is for full-time or part-time trainers, subject matter experts, supervisors, managers and anyone who is required to provide training in a classroom or on-the-job setting.

How long is the course?

The train the trainer course is typically a two-day course, but shorter and longer versions are available to cater for specific needs and levels of detail required.
