Train the Trainer Certificate

Learners thrive on engaging and thoughtful training environments, and trainers can reach more participants by utilizing dynamic styles of teaching throughout their curriculum. The Train the Trainer Certificate strengthens your skills as a trainer and optimizes the development and delivery of your programs. Using the industry model ADDIE (Assess, Design, Develop, Implement, Evaluate) as a framework, our two-course program provides a comprehensive foundation in professional training. In this program, work with our experienced instructors to create consistent, efficient and effective training programs suited to your needs.
