building and delivering effective training

T&W | May 3-4 | 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. | Westpointe Campus | $500 per person

Learn:

  • The Training Development Life Cycle
  • Adult learning methodologies
  • The difference between training and facilitating
  • Four basic adult learning styles
  • How to develop, document, and follow effective learning objectives

This fast-paced course is filled with realistic scenarios to help participants improve their employee relations skills.
