Train-the-Trainer Program Options

1.) On-Site Train-the-Trainer For Groups (Company Specific Training)

For over 25 years, TrainSmart has been designing, developing, and delivering customized on-site Train-the-Trainer programs. We offer a three day option at your site for up to 10 participants per class. We will tailor your Train-the-Trainer program to include documentation review and participant facilitation using company specific content that participants can use as their training project throughout the 3 days.

It is a great way to work as a team to increase the effectiveness of a training program, as well as to exchange ideas and approaches within the organization.

The best value is the on-site workshop. There are greater benefits to training as a group:

  • Use your own content throughout the 3 days and for the final project
  • Receive both facilitator and peer feedback and coaching
  • Discuss the design of your training program with a experienced TrainSmart facilitator/designer
