train the trainer for on-the-job training

On-the-job, one-on-one training in the workplace is the most effective way of enabling competencies in staff, and it has the added advantage of creating an inspirational environment.   


However, it requires the trainer to be able to adapt to the trainee, to the operational situation and the given objective for the training in question and that is what this one-day training course focuses on.

Anyone who wants to acquire one-on-one, on-the-job training techniques to welcome new employees or to deliver ongoing training to colleagues
