If companies are to survive and succeed in the current trend of rapid changes across industries, they need to be more adaptable and pro-active than before. An organization’s staying power will greatly depend on an acceptable workforce, thus the value of training.

In order for this to happen, the trainer should be able to put together a training design that does not only addresses the learners needs but also considers the most effective ways of carrying out the program utilizing the most appropriate methodologies. The trainer should be knowledgeable of adult learning principles and is able to deliver the program effectively using platform and facilitation skills.

A lot rides on it whenever one is tasked to share know-how with other people. Training is an investment in time, money, and effort not only of the trainer but the organization and the participants as well. A well planned and executed program should leave the learners with sufficient amount of knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to carry-out whatever is shared during the learning event.

The purpose of this program is to help those who are tasked with the big responsibility of training to acquire the basic skills necessary to prepare for and facilitate a training event.
