train the trainer in action

Helping your trainers engage your learners and improve outcomes

Endurance Learning’s Train the Trainer sessions will help transform your team from subject matter experts into trainers & facilitators that lead highly engaging workshops.

Experts who know the content

Training materials

Train-the-Trainer to supercharge both!

Your organization is full of people who have deep expertise and may even enjoy talking about it. You probably designed training materials that cover every bit of content to ensure that each trainer has all the resources they need. You kick off your training initiative and expect to see great results. But do you actually see great results?

Expecting your subject matter experts to pick up training materials and instantly become great facilitators who adeptly lead a training workshop is unfair to them and the learners.

Offering experts an opportunity to understand the mechanics behind training design and delivery and practice facilitation techniques will supercharge your training sessions and improve the learning experience.
