The training field is a continuously evolving environment—changing expectations from organizations and trainees, the introduction of new methodologies, and fresh insights on the best presentation and planning techniques.

As a training professional, you are required to adapt your knowledge and skills to ensure your training programs are impactful and successful. Participants of the Train-the-Trainer program learn the essentials of the training function while having the opportunity to apply the newly introduced content to their day-to-day jobs. 

Whether you are a seasoned professional looking for new approaches to deliver your programs or new to the field and seeking a strong foundational knowledge in critical training skills, the Train-the-Trainer program will have your audience praising your training abilities.

The Train-the-Trainer program provides instruction in three essential areas:

Discovering How Adults Learn
Discover what motivates adult learners and how to help them use their professional experiences to relate to the material at hand. The insights gleaned during this session will enable you to create a training climate that will make even the most resistant participant eager to learn.

Planning, Designing, and Evaluating Effective Training
The success of any training program is as much the result of planning and designing as it is the implementation of the program. You will learn how to create results-oriented training programs you can apply the first day back on the job.

Practicing Proven Classroom Training Techniques
Sharpen your skills as a trainer by learning creative, cost-effective, and actionable ways to conduct training programs more successfully, from introductions to debriefs.

Your trainer is Michael A. Lair, a spirited and dynamic trainer, facilitator, and leader in the field of hands-on adult learning, action learning, team performance, and facilitation. Mike has designed and facilitated creative and engaging training programs that provide practical learning that sticks. This program is modeled after Dr. Edward Jones’ infamous Train-the-Trainer program, and Mike has been a practicing disciple of Ed’s techniques for over 25 years.
