"I enjoyed everything about this course. I realize I need to practice my presentation."  —  Frankie Ramos, The Gund Comapny

"The UWM Train the Trainer Certificate series is one of the best train-the-trainer events I’ve attended – covering topics from the initial training request/analysis through design and learning objectives development. Whether you are new to training or have been in the field for a while, there is something to learn with courses that pull people from different levels/backgrounds together and provide them an opportunity to share with and learn from each other. The information is presented in a manner that someone new to training can easily attend and gain valuable insight, and yet takes some deeper dives on topics that will help further develop skills of more experienced trainers."  —  Tamara Berger, February 2023
