Train the Trainer

Training and Development

The Mindspa Institute Train the Trainer course will improve your training technique and give you the confidence to deliver highly effective training to a diverse adult audience. Adult learners are unique: they are often people with years of experience; they have technical expertise and cannot be trained in the same way as children who are easily “wowed” by new knowledge.  This course will equip trainers with the understanding required to effectively impart knowledge to an adult audience.

 The course will address frequently asked questions such as:

  • How do adults learn best?
  • What are learning tips for trainers?
  • What are the Characteristics of Exceptional Trainers?
  • What are the Pitfalls of Poor Trainers and How to Avoid Them?
  • How to Handle the Difficult “Kids” in the Group
  • How to structure an effective training session
