Course description

Facilitation Training for New and “Accidental” Trainers

Fundamental skills for facilitating adult learning

This workshop focuses on the skills required to facilitate adult learning. Training helps participants deliver content clearly, concisely, and persuasively. They will also learn to facilitate group interactions efficiently. 

Participants will work with their own real-life training content. Class exercises are video recorded and followed by instructor-led video review. This two-instructor approach helps learners assess their skills and build on their strengths. The Facilitation Training for New and “Accidental” Trainers workshop incorporates a blended learning approach that includes pre-work as well as post-workshop access to job aids and reference materials through eCoach, Turpin's online learner's portal. Participants also receive a copy of The Orderly Conversation: Business Presentations Redefined

Training is tailored to the needs of individuals and the organization they work for. If participants don't have training materials to practice during the workshop, Turpin trainers help with the instructional design process.
