Train the Trainer
Course Code - BC-402 Duration - 2 Days
The main information and content of this course is presented in an interactive presentation style, but workshop sessions ensure full participation by all attendees.
Each attendee is required to deliver two presentations, one of five minutes (Day 1) and one of twenty minutes (Day 2).
To make things as realistic as possible, the presentations use the actual materials, methods and techniques as currently (or about to be) used on the participants’ standard courses. This gives attendees a chance to try presenting using their real materials, but in a non-threatening workshop environment.
Accurate feedback is vital; hence the group in open forum discusses each presentation, immediately after the presentation critiquing strengths and highlighting areas for improvement. This also forms a valuable part of a Personal Action Plan to apply on return to the training workplace.
This course provides techniques, which will enhance the quality and effectiveness of training sessions given by “technical experts”. The workshop will benefit those whose role is to train others in the use of technical products and/or services.
Although everyone develops their own style in delivering technical information, there are specific techniques, which can be very effective when properly applied.
This course takes a fresh look at those techniques and provides a set of interactive ‘people skills’ approaches, which can ensure high quality, enjoyable training results.
Although actual ‘Presentation Technique’ is important, this course provides higher-level communication methods, which lead to enhanced audience awareness, better interpersonal contact and a highly interactive, participative presentation style.

Important Note to Participants : What to Bring With You
The value of this Workshop format depends on you being prepared to try out new techniques and to stretch your presentation style into new areas.
To get the maximum benefit from this, you should make up or acquire training materials, which you can use to present the 5-minute session mentioned above.
You should come to the course ready to present something coherent and have your prompts and notes organised.
If you are already using training materials, or are in preparation of new materials, these will be ideal. Handouts are not necessary.
The course is delivered on two separate days to give attendees time to prepare for presentation on Day Two.
