Train the trainer

Leaders and specialists in organisations often take on the role of a workplace trainer for new employees or when new systems or new technology is introduced. Training is an interesting and often challenging role. Trainers have to guide people through a learning process and guide their behaviour and knowledge appropriately. At times it is a difficult role and requires both clear thinking and good interpersonal skills. Trainers must be able to plan, prepare, deliver and review training.

This course teaches how to design and implement training programs in your organisation so that you can manage knowledge transfer effectively.
