Train the Trainer

New expectations require that we not only share our experience, but that we train others in a manner that ensures a transfer of knowledge and/or skills to those who will utilize what they learn to change their behaviour on the job. In order to increase our skills and confidence in our role as trainers, we will investigate how best to identify training needs, plan our training and how we can use the learner centered approach to create a climate conducive to learning.
