advanced trainer skills training Advanced Trainer Skills

Behind every spectacular training session is a lot of preparation and meticulous attention to detail. The truly skilled trainer can make a program exciting. The learners will have fun while they are learning if the facilitator is able to involve their emotions as well as their minds. You will see the involvement, and you will feel the energy.

To reach this stage as an advanced trainer isn’t always easy, but success isn’t just for the naturally gifted. It is possible for all of us who put effort into our personal growth and development. We want the enormous satisfaction that comes from working with others to help them reach their potential as human beings. This three-day advanced trainer skills workshop will help you reach that goal.

This workshop requires that you have a good understanding of basic training principles, including adult learning concepts, Taylor Mason’s experiential learning cycle, training methods, and designing a learning sequence. We strongly recommend completing Taylor Mason’s The Practical Trainer workshop before taking this course.
