TRAIN THE TRAINER - HOW TO BRING TRAINING TO LIFE

COURSE OVERVIEW

The ability to train others is a growing expectation of employers of their employees.

With the many “company specific” technologies, systems and processes out there often companies have no choice but to perform training themselves.

On top of this for large scale training across a company, internal training is often far more cost effective than sending personnel to external providers.

However, many people who are asked to train have never had formal training on preparing and presenting training and this can make all the difference in the success of a training programme.

In order to assist companies to provide their internal trainers with the appropriate skills to perform effective training, AstroTech is offering a training programme on “Train the Trainer: How to Bring Training to Life”.
