Testimonials from clients that have completed our Train the Trainer courses:

★★★★★ ""The course was the best that I have attended, and I took a lot from it. Ralph is a fantastic trainer and can get the best out of his delegates. It is clear that he is an expert in his field. The training course has been beneficial, and the feedback from training that I deliver in my role has improved dramatically since attending." Katie Beal, New Law Solicitors.

★★★★★ "I can't believe what we have covered over the last couple of days. I think it was one of the most exciting, mind-blowing experiences I have had, and I feel like a different person. Ralph made sure I understood and that I had the skills to be a FANTASTIC TRAINER." Sandy Dodd, Tuxford Academy.

★★★★★ "The course handouts and workbook were excellent and will provide a useful tool for me to practice the techniques and thinking patterns discussed over the two days. The course is a mix of theory and practical exercises which will push you out of your comfort zone, but I would urge anyone, with any level of experience of delivering training, to do this course.  On my first day back to work after completing, I have arranged my first training session with my Team, and I look forward to more!”Jamie Fry, Nicki Souter Associates.

★★★★★ "My experience with Target Training has been absolutely outstanding! It has genuinely changed my life and made me really excited for a future in training. I had the pleasure of working with Ralph, Scott and Claire, and all 3 trainers really encouraged me and gave me really useful feedback so that I clearly understood what I was doing well and what I could develop. The training itself was engaging, informative and inspiring, and it is genuinely the best training I have ever received. I have gone from being a total training novice to confidently delivering an effective training session equipped with all the tools I need." Sarah Borg.
