“I found the PTT Train the Trainer Course through a search engine. I did my research and Target Training Associates had some great reviews – and they didn’t fail to deliver. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by Ralph with a great big smile and a warm welcome. I was made to feel at ease and was introduced to our team for the course. Our group was a full course and we all got on superbly well! Ralph’s approach was personable, patient and engaging. Nothing was too much trouble for him. As well as group feedback, we had the opportunity for one to one feedback too which was hugely beneficial. Although I had some experience of facilitating training, I learnt skills that I will carry with me for the rest of my career. I have no doubt that Ralph would be an inspirational mentor. His ability to relate to situations is second to none and I found him a pleasure to learn from. I highly recommend Target Training Associates as a credible and reliable training provider.” Caroline Day, One Medical Group.

“I cannot remember the last time I attended a course that I enjoyed as much as the PTT Train the Trainer course this week. The course was fulfilling from a learning perspective as well as entertaining from an activity & enjoyment perspective. The boundaries of individuals were tested throughout the course and I did not anticipate to see such immediate improvement in myself and peers.” Paul Williams, Schawk.

"Having done many train the trainer courses in my 40 + year career, none, absolutely none gave me the tools or advice that I received from Target." Derrick Norton, Iberdrola Engineering & Construction.

“The PTT course that Ralph and Target Training provides is so much more than just an ordinary training course. I am absolutely buzzing with confidence after 2 days of training and I am now desperate to put my new skills to the test. The training was delivered with the upmost professionalism and definitely the best training course I have ever attended, I cannot speak highly enough about the whole experience." Richard Darnell, Whitworths Ltd.

"After the course had ended, I delivered a training session which received excellent feedback – something I attribute to the new skills I learned on the PTT course.

Ruth Hawke, SYHA.

I felt like the content was perfectly applicable to my day to day role and your delivery and guidance was spot on." Pete Sunday, Gamma.

“I attended the PTT Course, provided by Target Training Associates, led by the King of positivity, Ralph Moody. It was such an insightful two days and I took away more than I thought possible about different training techniques and how to ensure delegates are actually benefitting from the training courses that I run. This was not a generic course by any means, Ralph was able to tailor the course throughout using real life situations from his impressive career, which was really helpful. I will be recommending Target Training Associates at every opportunity and convincing my management team to sign me up to more of their courses.” Joel Evans, Triaster.

“I just wanted to say that the course you ran last week was one of the best I have attended in a very long time. I was not sure what I was going to take away from this when I was booked on to it but the content of the course and the delivery was first class with great interaction and very enjoyable. As an HSE advisor, delivering material is part of my job and the skills you taught us last week are already being utilisedto great effect. I have sent feedback to our HR team highlighting the benefits of the course and I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to my colleagues in oil and gas.” John Riddick, Wood Group.

“I originally approached this course with a little trepidation prior to its start. All I can say is that it is possibly the best training course I have been on. I have learnt so much from just two days, that I can already notice the changes in the way I deliver and design training and presentation activities. I can honestly say that I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to get into training, or has been delivering training for some time. Can’t rate it highly enough!” Matt Retallack, Landmark Information Group.

“The course was genuinely the best and most enjoyable I have ever been on so a big thank you for your time and effort over the past few days.” Steffan Roberts, 2excel Aviation.

“The person walking into the course compared to the person leaving the course you couldn’t even compare, they two totally different people. The skills and knowledge which both David and myself obtained in those two days go above and beyond of which we can apply in all aspects of life and not just teaching. Yes the course is intense and you are completely pulled out of your comfort zones on a number of occasions but it really works and the sense of achievement and self-belief which I am taking away with me I am truly grateful for. The course is without a doubt one of the best that I have attended from a practical and theoretic point of view, I really feel as though I am leaving as a true professional. Thank you to you Scott.” Samantha Wright, Aerospace Inspection Training Ltd.

“I have learned a HUGE amount, most enjoyable training course I have ever been on.” Dr Joseph Muench, Pharmaserve North West.

“In discussion this morning I absolutely enthused about the experience of the last two days. I am certain I will need a few days/months/years to process and reflect on everything now that I’m back at work. I feel I have made a huge shift in my thinking and perceptions of self in the last few days, not only in learning some exceptional skills and techniques, but also personally." Marion Eastwood, Regents University.

“As a solicitor I have been on many courses, this is the best course I have ever attended during my professional career.” Sarah Bloor, Winn Solicitors.

“There was lots of practice which is just what I needed and I loved the questioning techniques and MBTI. Ralph practices what he teaches so you can see it in action whilst learning. Just right for my needs.” Tim Bellhouse, NBS (RIBA Enterprises).

“The practical opportunities to practice these new found skills and the opportunity to receive constructive feedback throughout the course is hugely beneficial not just you, but to whole group as we all learnt so much from one another. Thoroughly enjoyable and you won't want to go back to your desk afterward, I know I certainly didn't!!! Fantastic course and well worth anyone's time if they are interested in developing training skills.” Helen Carvey, UKIM.

“The course was amazing, in fact, if there is a word better than that then I would use it. It was intense and at the same time life changing. The feedback added to the process. I feel like a different person with so much energy. I have attended courses ( I mean a lot), I have to say your course is by far the best.” Viv Okuguni, IG Index.

“Without doubt it was the most useful course that I have ever been on. I have learnt skills that can be applied inside and outside the workplace.” Lewis O’Sullivan, Skills Funding Agency.

“I wanted to e-mail you to say again how marvellous your training was, and how much I have learned. Actually, I know that I have grown personally too by the whole experience. I will definitely recommend you to all and sundry! My all time favourite saying which, I believe, is originally from Isaac Newton, goes something like “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” You are definitely one of my ‘giants’!” Aileen Hughes, H&S Consultant.

"I can't believe what we have covered over the last couple of days. I think it was one of the most interesting, 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.

"Never have I experienced such impactive, positive and knowledgeable training as I did when I attended the Advanced Professional Training Techniques course, delivered by Ralph in Edinburgh. The facilitation of inclusive participation, the motivating delivery and the exceptionally positive reinforcement of skills with constructive identification of areas for development were second to none I have experienced. Exceptional!" Andrew Graham, Graham Consultancy.

"Are courses accredited?"

ILM Logo

Courses such as PTT Train the Trainer, Advanced PTT Train the Trainer, Master Trainer, Coaching Skills for Managers/Trainers, Master Coach, Presentation Skills, Management Development Programmes and Essential Skills for Managers are all accredited by the ILM. Based in the UK as part of the City & Guilds group they are a leading provider of specialist qualifications.  ILM is also recognised globally and many of their products and services are delivered and enjoyed by customers in many countries around the world.

"Do I have to complete a portfolio or pass an exam to complete the course?"

On courses that are accredited, they are performance assessed.  No portfolios or additional tests or statements are required.  Whilst on the training delegates are shown the skills and techniques required and they are then given opportunities to practise and develop.  During this time our trainers offer support and guidance accordingly. A formal assessment is then conducted at the end of the course and one to one feedback is given focusing on what was done well and areas for development.

"What is the difference between Coaching and Training?"

There are often mistakes regarding understanding the differences between the two methods.

Coaching - A conversation between the coach and the coachee whereby the coachee achieves a higher level and understanding of awareness and self-awareness, while the coach provides a safe environment and structure for that outcome to occur.

Training -  Training is teaching or developing in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. Training has specific goals of improving one's capability, capacity, productivity and performance and to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life.

To train, you need to know the skill, to coach you don’t because it is more about the person.

How can these be miss-understood? I know the English language does not help with a ski instructor and a tennis coach, but coaching and training are different. I see the cross between coach and mentor is the same; the key is to understand the boundaries between them all.
