    TrainSMART’s Online Train-the-Trainer Workshop

    Lake Mary, FL Customer Success Story

    The Institute of Internal Auditors uses volunteers to facilitate the Institute’s training programs.  The programs are designed and developed by the Institute. The institute engages and trains contractors to facilitate these programs.  The Institute’s program coordinators wanted to bring consistency to the training and raise the bar for the delivery of what could be a dry subject – auditing.

    The Train-the-Trainer focused on helping participants develop creative ways to make the program concepts sticky and engaging. During the workshop participants practiced flexing their creativity with the content they would actually be teaching.

    The workshop allowed the participants to showcase and share their extensive knowledge of auditing in ways they hadn’t considered. The participants now have the tools to present topics creatively and they have various methods for checking in on their learners to ensure the retention of the concepts they are teaching.

    What Past Participants Are Saying…

    “The Train-the-Trainer course was fantastic! Some of the most valuable things that I gained are confidence; techniques to facilitate dry, technical data; and PowerPoint tricks.”

    V.P. Learning and Development
    Global Pharmaceutical Company
    Greater Chicago Area

    “The instructor was excellent, in fact, one of the best that I had experienced. The course is well-structured, presented in an excellent fashion for both the written and facilitation.”

    Sr. Marketing Specialist
    Underwriters Laboratories
    Greater Chicago Area

    “This is the best Train-the-Trainer course that I ever attended! I did not expect that I was going to learn new innovative approaches to training development, delivery, and assessment.”

    North America Sales Manager
    Underwriters Laboratories
    Greater St. Louis Area

    Excellent training. It provided a lot of useful tools to improve my delivery skills. The format of presenting and recording each session provided unrepresented real-time feedback that I used as constructive feedback. I highly recommend sending your employees to take this training if you want to be effective when delivering training.


    Jose Perez
    Sr Tech Services Director

    TrainSMART delivered an excellent training course on Train the Trainer. It was exactly what we asked for and more than what we expected. I highly recommend using TrainSMART for your next training course. Anna Filas was knowledgeable about the topics covered and provided excellent feedback for our trainers. We will be reaching out to them again in the future for training needs.

    Stephanie Whittenburg

    I learned so much about myself during the Train the Trainer class. The exercises taught me the most. It was beneficial to have the video of the various presentations I made so that I could view myself while presenting and tweak my presentation skills and classroom interaction professionally with the help of the training facilitator. The instructor truly “facilitated” my learning. I highly recommend this company for your training needs.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Question: What sets your Train-the-Trainer above others? Is it the facilitators? The certification? Your content?

    It is all of the above.  We have awesome, engaged, informed, well-educated, and fun master facilitators who continue to grow in the L & D space because they choose to be the best to assist others to grow in their training function.  The small class size.  The agility and flexibility that we give the facilitators to run the workshop include details required while optimizing the requests and needs of the participants. With the number of practices and interactions, there is very little lecture occurring during the three days.  The content is updated and reviewed, regularly and the IBCT requires a re-certification every three years to ensure that the program is keeping pace with the Learning and Development trends and practices.

    Question: What is the main focus of the content of your Train-the-Trainer workshop?

    The focus of the Train-the-Trainer program is to prepare the participant to understand how adults learn best, understand how to assess the learning needs and write solid objectives that tie to the program design and development.  There is a large part of the workshop that focuses on delivering and evaluating the training.  Topics include communication skills, presentation skills, various best practices training techniques, preparing for the delivery of training, listening, questioning, handling difficult situations, virtual training, one-on-one, classroom management, and finally evaluation.  We would suggest using your content for the various practices throughout the three-day workshop.  The amount of emphasis on a given topic and if there is a particular policy and practice at your organization, we will infuse it into our training.

    Question: How many days is TrainSMART’s Train-the-Trainer Course?

    Answer: TrainSmart’s Internationally Certified Train-the-Trainer workshop is a three-day workshop filled with current tips and techniques, best practices, and hours of practice.

    Question: What does the course include?

    Answer: Following the workshop, each participant is able to submit a recording of their training, and then experience a one-on-one virtual facilitated feedback session.

    Question: What is the 3rd day of training like?

    Answer: On Day 3, you will facilitate a 10 to 15-minute “training session” on a topic of your choice.  This event is peer-reviewed and video-recorded.  Your goal for this session is to simulate as real a training experience as possible.  To help you achieve this, please review the attached Train-the-Trainer Pre-work document then send me a high-level outline of your topic, along with an example of an activity you’d like to include at least five days prior to the course.  If you are able to do this, I will send you feedback and suggestions before the start of the course.  You may bring any additional materials and aids that will help with your session.  A laptop and projector are available for PPT.

    Question: Does TrainSMART Offer On-Site Train-the-Trainer Options?


    Question: What differentiates your Train-the-Trainer program from other Train-the-Trainer companies and programs?

    TrainSmart’s Internationally Certified Train-the-Trainer workshop is certified by The International Board of Certified Trainers and is not Self-Certified.  You will find that most of the TTT programs are certified by the company that designed and developed the workshops which do not give it creditability or hold it to a particular standard, like TrainSmart’s TTT.  Further, TrainSmart tailors/customizes all of its programs to meet the needs/goals/objectives of the audience, as we know that this will provide the greatest value and knowledge transfer for the participants.

    Question: In your company’s view, what makes a person a great trainer?

    A great trainer is one who listens to the need, provides feedback for the expected outcomes, along with activities that align with the client, engages the audience, while attending to each participant’s concerns, goals, and experience, and all the while making the learning fun by the design of several interactions and check-ins with the participant.  The trainer uses the Tell3 method: Tell them what you are going to (teach) tell them, Tell/teach them, tell them what you told. Taught them.  Review. The trainer is nurturing and provides the tools, best practices, and recommendations for being a successful trainer.

    Question: How much does the 3-Day Train-the-Trainer Course Cost?

    Answer: $2200.00

    Question: Do you offer government discounts?

    Yes, we offer a 10% discount for government agencies.  We offer a larger discount for onsite private workshops.

    Question: When we complete the three-day training, what certification would we be awarded?  I do see the IBCT fee is included in the cost, so would it be the IBCT Associate Trainer Certificate or the IBCT Professional Trainer Certificate?

    Answer: The level of certification is predicated on experience and education.  Take a look at the link which provides details for all three levels of international certification.  Additionally, you can start at the Associate Trainer level and move up based on additional experience and education.

    Question: What is the cancellation policy for the Train-the-Trainer workshop?

    Answer: Workshop registration is only confirmed when full payment has been received from a participant.

    If sufficient confirmed registrations have not been received two weeks in advance of the scheduled starting date, the workshop may be canceled.

    In the unlikely event that the workshop is canceled, all confirmed participants will be notified immediately and receive a full refund.

    If a participant chooses to cancel their confirmed registration, or cannot or does not attend the workshop, the participant can apply the registration fee, less the $100 re-processing fee to a future workshop that is taken one year from the original workshop date. Full cancellation must be made within 21 business days after the first day of the workshop.
