DESCRIPTION

The information and technology explosion has moved the corporate world into a fast-paced age of specialisation. With employee turnover at an all time high, in order to stay competitive, productive and profitable, a successful organisation needs to recognise the benefits of ongoing, results-driven training. More is known today about how to train technical professionals than ever before. Many formal, once-accepted training practices are disappearing in favour of accelerated learning techniques and practical activities. In traditional training courses, participants usually retain only 5-30% of the information. In order to increase retention to 90% or more, the internal trainer needs to learn how to achieve outstanding learner-focused results. Only when trainers understand the science behind adult learning and develop an interactive skill set can technical subject matter become engaging and memorable.

This course is about the importance of transforming the internal trainer into a facilitator of learning, not merely a presenter of content. Participants will learn how to keep information dynamic, reinforce new learning, determine the needs of an audience, improve participant interaction and produce training material that can be applied immediately in the workplace. Participants will leave the training course equipped with the latest techniques to train others in their area of expertise. During the course, participants will present their newly modified training materials, and they will receive feedback from both the instructor and fellow participants in order to gain a true perspective of their individual training style.
