    Creating Training is taught by senior training professionals from the ATD‐OC community.  This program takes participants from the initial needs analysis through the evaluation phases of a training program. Join us to not just learn about creating impactful training, but to embody the change that drives organizational success.

    Who is Total Trainer for?

    • Instructional designers
    • Those wishing to enter the training field
    • Training coordinators, specialists and managers wanting more formal training in program designing and implementing training

    The course works great for both experienced and inexperienced trainers and presenters. Those less-experienced focus on developing fundamental skills, while the more-experienced take action on subtle tips and techniques that take their skills to the next level.
