Training Design for Trainers

You're the expert in your field and now you're being asked to train others. The only problem? You're not a trainer! If your current or future responsibilities have you designing training programs this interactive, "hands-on" course will introduce the basic tools you need to design effective training using the components of the ADDIE model. Discover how adults learn, how to develop materials in an organized manner, methods and options available for delivering the program, how to handle problematic participant behaviors and measure your training programs’ success. At the conclusion of the course, participants will put theory into practice and create their own training outline.

After this class, you will be able to:

  • Appraise your current skill level in the basic competencies for trainers as identified by the Association for Talent Development (ATD)
  • Write learning objectives for a training program using the “task”, “condition” and “degree” criteria
  • Incorporate the eight intelligences as described by Howard Gardner in the design and delivery of a training program
  • Incorporate the three learning styles (visual, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic) in the design and delivery of a training program
  • Create a training program outline using a simplified version of the ADDIE model
  • Address problematic participant behaviors during a training session
  • Measure the results of training for learning and bottom –line results
  • Strategies for effective delivery of the training program
