The Practical Trainer


Part of knowing where you are going is defining what you are doing. Training can mean different things to different people: a trainee has needs, your supervisor has expectations, and as trainers, you have objectives. The assumption that anyone who can do a job can teach another person how to do it has led to countless errors in the instruction process. Many of us have been either a victim of or a witness to this misguided belief.

Trainees are most engaged by a trainer who:

  • Has some experience to share
  • Has something of value to offer
  • Can provide some real examples and give them some tips
  • Lets participants talk and share their experiences with others

Throughout this course, we take a closer look at how to approach teaching individuals with an affinity for any learning style. Whether a seasoned trainer or looking to get started this course is an excellent resource to complement your existing skillset or develop your own style for more effective training.
