Delivering High Impact Training Classes



Course Description

This course enables organizational trainers to vastly improve their ability to deliver meaningful learning sessions. This course examines both the classic learning theories that have guided the work of effective educators as well as the very recent discoveries on how the brain receives, processes, stores, and retrieves information. Equally important, participants will prepare and deliver numerous practice presentations while receiving coaching feedback from an award-winning instructor with over 20 years of classroom delivery experience.


A basic familiarity with the subject matter is helpful, but not required.
