    Tailoring the Course Content:

    Catalyst will endeavour, with your help and approval, to tailor the course content as much as possible. We can do this by:

    • Incorporating your organisation's documentation
    • Referring to your organisation's policies, guides and procedures
    • Agreeing pre-course and post-course work
    • Tailoring exercises and the course manual to suit your requirements

    For further details on how Catalyst can tailor your course see Tailored Courses.


    Whilst delegates learn the theory of how and why people learn, the emphasis of this course is on the practical skills needed to deliver fun, informative and effective training sessions.

    Who should attend?:

    This course is intended for new and inexperienced trainers who want to understand the training 'process'.  Also, experienced trainers who have received no formal training or wish to acquire hints and tips from professional trainers.
