On-the-Job Training: Train-the-Trainer with Pete Mcvoy. 

 

Live, In-person Instruction!

 

To operate successfully, strategically, and safely,
manufacturing organizations require solid, strong training programs. And who better to
train on a topic, process, and/or area of expertise than the person who knows the most
about it? But what if that person isn’t a “trainer”? By learning practical and impactful
strategies delivering training, coaching, mentoring, and delivering meaningful feedback,
participants will learn invaluable skills to be able to transfer their knowledge and
expertise to others, and at the same time, provide their audiences with lasting and
meaningful training experiences.

Who will this class benefit?

Anyone responsible for training others in their particular area of
expertise and/or career discipline but who does not have a great deal of experience in
training, facilitation, coaching, and/or mentoring. In addition, this training is also well-
suited for those who already train regularly but believe they need to improve
their skills.
