Online Train the Trainer Courses - We have adapted our regular face to face courses into fully interactive instructor-led online events.

Train the Trainer is our speciality and we are recognised as the market leader in trainer training. Whether you require a formal qualification to be a trainer or just need to develop your trainer skills further, from novice to expert, we have a course for you. You can see our open course schedule by using the course finder tool on this page.

Delegates tell us that ours are the best classes they have ever attended, and you can read our testimonials here. Many trainers just read PowerPoint slides, but this isn’t effective training, and many don’t engage with effective questioning to check to understand. We will show you the real skills required to facilitate learning to an exceptional standard, using skills and techniques associated with highly experienced trainers.  Even if you think you can't deliver brilliant training we guarantee by the end of the course you will be delivering training as if you had been doing it for years.

We offer accredited courses that will recognise you as a certified professional trainer. You will develop the skills to engage and motivate. Moreover, you will learn how to structure highly effective training that works. Our courses are held at conveniently located venues throughout the UK. We also offer courses delivered at your location in-house, fully bespoke, tailored to your specific business needs.
