This 3 CE-certificate course is designed to build and complement your own training skills in these critical areas:

  1. Preparing for Successful Training
  2. Curriculum Design & Implementation 
  3. Assessment & Evaluation

Designed to be completed in three (3) hours, the certificate course offers insights, activities and resources that will guide you through the training process from development, to delivery and evaluation.

“The Train-the-Trainer Certificate is one of those courses that I would go back to again and again, because even though I understand the material, I would like to say, ‘Okay, now that I’m creating this class, I want to go through these specific parts of the course and make sure I’m still checking all those boxes.’ Having that frame of reference is very beneficial as an instructor.
