Most people who call themselves facilitators or trainers today probably did not start out to be one.  They often worked in a field where they developed extensive knowledge and then were asked to share what they know with others.  Many also had a bit of experience with teaching, writing, or leadership, although a facilitator/trainer can have widely varying backgrounds and experiences.

One common thread though is the fact that many facilitators/trainers were put into difficult situations without much understanding of what the role entailed or how to do it well.

If you think about the good facilitator/trainer you have experienced, each has developed the skills needed to bring information and needed skills to an audience is such a way that the audience is engaged, empowered, and encouraged to change behaviors in a given situation – usually on-the-job – in a positive direction in order to increase or improve individual or organizational performance.

By successfully completing this live online workshop series made up of multiple two-hour sessions, TrainSmart believes you should gain the knowledge and skills needed to be a solid workplace facilitator/trainer.

What People Are Saying…

I was a bit nervous about this workshop, as I was skeptical about how it would work if it were a large group taking part. I was pleased to find out that there were just 10 people enrolled in the class. I enjoyed this very much as it was enough people to make it fun and engaging, while small enough that I was able to provide input along the way and participate. Michelle Allegretti was my instructor for this course and I have to say that she was absolutely phenomenal. I learned so much from her and she really made it a safe place to learn. There were people all over the world that attended so it was quite an interesting class. It was extremely interactive so there was never a dull moment. I started the course skeptical and unsure of myself in a trainer role and left with the confidence to conquer my trainer role.
