Course Overview

This training certificate course covers the entire end-to-end training cycle, including planning and preparing a training event, managing the learning environment and engaging participants in the classroom, and following up post-event to continue to support learning. We’ll cover the science behind learning as well—why and how learner needs and preferences, training techniques, classroom environment, and well-structured materials all affect learning outcomes.
