What is Train The Trainer Advanced Week?

Train The Trainer Advanced Week Product Image

Train the Trainer Advanced Week is designed for Train the Trainer Boot Camp graduates who want to stretch their expertise and master the art of training. During Advanced Week you will spend time with Train the Trainer Boot Camp attendees and get hands on training experience. We will teach you techniques on conducting webinars, using pre- and post-testing, and building a learner guide. You will have a chance to act as a mentor, lead a team, manage an exercise and/or teach a topic.



What will I learn?

During Train the Trainer Advanced Week you will learn visual design practices that will help you significantly with learning retention and engagement. You will learn how to subtly draw attention where it’s most effective and leave with a wealth of expertise to master the PowerPoint and Word skills that will help you make stunning presentations and professional training manuals. Advanced Week attendees will also learn communication techniques and alternatives to a classroom environment so they can maximize learning retention.

Why does it work?

Train the Trainer Advanced Week builds on the solid foundations laid out by the Train the Trainer Boot Camp. It is built around the A-E Professional Development Model™, developed by Honey Shelton. Honey is a graduate of the School of Bank Marketing from the University of Colorado. She has a certification in Reality Therapy from the William Glasser Institute as well as certification from the Training and Development Program at Texas A&M. Additionally, Honey has over 30 years of experience consulting and presenting at over 600 clients across the country, including banks, credit unions as well as state banking-related associations. She spends time as a faculty member for banking schools and established The Training Institute.

Out of all these experiences and knowledge, Honey created the A-E Professional Development Model™. An engaging, learner-friendly model that takes a step-by-step approach to acquiring all the expertise and right tools to become an outstanding trainer and speaker.
