Course Overview

Training is an essential element of development in any organization. Being knowledgeable and continuing to learn throughout your career can make you a very valuable asset. We also know that training and orientation (or ‘onboarding’) for newly hired employees is a key factor in retention.

In order for training to be valuable, the person that designs and plans the training must have an excellent understanding of what the training objectives are. In addition, if the trainer is able to research the strategic objectives of the company providing the training to their staff, what resources are available, and what elements of those plans can enhance the training experience, the entire experience is much more meaningful. At the same time, if a trainer is aware of any barriers that training could present (such as trainees being on call during a session, having to spread training over a long period of time, or trainees who are not accustomed to theory or classroom types of presentations), then the trainer can present a much stronger program that is tailored specifically to the participants’ needs.

This course is designed for a trainer who wants to develop training programs that are meaningful, practical, and will benefit both trainees and the organizations they work for.
