Module Two: Understanding Training and Facilitation

What is Training?

Training is a multi-faceted discipline that uses a variety of training methods to bring about a behavioral change in something we do. Training is a process that starts when a participant sign-up for a class and ends when the student can display the skills, knowledge, and attitude regularly.

Training Process

  • Identifying the need for new learning to take place
  • Securing management buy-in for training to be developed
  • Creating participant-centered learning opportunities
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of the training offered

What is Facilitation?

The role of a trainer and facilitator are often interchanged but these job descriptions have fundamental differences. A trainer is a subject matter expert who is qualified to teach/train students in their expertise. Facilitators on the other hand provide direction, facilitate training, or create an environment conducive to training.

What are the Basic Skills of a Facilitator?

  • Ensures everyone participates
  • Ensures that everyone is focused, understands the problems/needs to be addressed
  • Maintain a safe and conducive learning environment for trainers and students

Module Three: Gathering Materials

Providing a conducive environment for training requires anticipating the needs, wants, expectations of participants. In this part of the session, we discuss how we can identify and address these needs.

Identifying Participant's Needs

  • Know your participants. You should also consider management or supervisor expectations.
  • Conduct a needs assessment to determine if all concerns (participants, supervisor expectations) are real needs
  • Learn their current skills level, knowledge and previous work experience

Reviewing Materials

  • Ensure that all training materials are current and relevant
  • Be careful with information you provide especially those sourced from the internet. This information should be verified or come from a trusted source.
  • Ensure that all training materials are original, or you have the written permission from the copyright holder

Module Four: Choosing Activities

For most people, hands-on training or actual application of concepts is the best way to learn. Developing training activities that support learning objectives keeps students engaged and makes it easier for trainers to verify student learning outcome.

Benefits of Planned Activities

  • Keeps training fast-paced and stimulating
  • Helps bring people together and removes barriers
  • Lightens the mood, reduce stress levels
  • Improves learning retention through hands on application and practice

Examples of Learning Activities:

Choosing the right activity requires subject matter expertise. A good trainer through his experience must know what activities works best for each training concept. Trainers must be able to mix or provide a variety of activities to keep participants engaged.

  • Games
  • Icebreakers
  • Energizer
  • Simulations
  • Role plays
  • Case studies
  • Preparing for emergencies

Module Five: Preparing for the Course

Organization and preparedness are must-have qualities of a competent trainer. Not having your training materials and a training plan can get you derailed even before training starts. The Train the Trainer Online Certificate course helps you prepare the course by:

Setting up the classroom:

To create a conducive training environment, a trainer must first ensure that the physical location meets these requirements:

  • Training room must be free from obstructions (pillars) to avoid blind spots and must have a minimum 10 feet ceiling height
  • Rear entrance to the training room to ensure the least amount of distraction
  • Tables and chairs are equally spread throughout the room. Chairs should be equally spread for every table to avoid crowding.
  • For training sessions with 5 to 10 participants, use round tables to encourage discussion and interaction. This also gives all participants equal access to the trainer
  • Ensure that all visual aids are appropriate for the size of the room and number of participants. Use flip charts for groups of less than 20. Projectors, large electronic whiteboards must be used for training sessions with 20 or more participants.
  • Trainers must be qualified with all the training equipment, software to be used (PowerPoint, projectors)

Module Six: Getting Off on the Right Foot

Getting off on the right foot helps you set the right mood for the whole training session.

Greeting Participants Tips

  • Greet participants as they come in the door
  • Request participants to use a name card or tent card so you could address them by their name
  • Ask participants to introduce themselves individually or for large groups, ask a representative to introduce the group as a whole
  • Use an icebreaker
  • Introduce yourself as the trainer
  • Create an open, and welcoming training atmosphere
  • Dress appropriately, formal in a conference setup or in the right safety gear for the training activity
  • Ask participants about their expectations and learning objectives

Module Seven: Delivery Tips and Tricks

In this part of the Train the Trainer online course, we will learn about the different training delivery methods and when to use them.

Visual Aids

Our brain constructs pictures in our minds as people speak to us. This is done to reinforce the concepts learned in training. There are a variety of visual aids being incorporated in training sessions (PowerPoint, flip charts, whiteboards) to facilitate better comprehension among trainees. It can also include the use of videos. When planning to use video, here are key considerations:

  • Videos are perfect for demonstrating motion such as showing how to operate equipment
  • Preview the clip
  • Ensure that all videos are original, or you have appropriate copyright permission
  • Mark video sequences to ensure easy access and playback
  • Check if using video against a training manual is more appropriate
  • Check is the video is adequate in content to deliver training or does it require additional training materials (manuals, lectures) for support
  • Videos should not be presented as a method for changing pace but must be considered as crucial to the training process

Whiteboards

Whiteboards have taken over old-school chalk boards. Basically, these have the same functionality of chalk boards. However, these come with a plus - it can be transferred from one place to another. White boards also offer other advantages over other types of visual aids. These are relatively cheaper and easier to use. Consider using whiteboards when training requires a lot of impromptu or quick edits on the go.

Flip Charts

This visual aid is ideal for small groups. Ideally, flip charts give you an easy to create training tool that requires minimum preparation times. Below are a few tips on how to make flip charts more effective:

  • Prepare some sheets in advance
  • Use highly saturated color (black, blue, red)
  • Leave some room at the bottom of the page
  • Use highlights, markers to emphasize important points
  • Stand to side of the flip chart and face the participants when speaking
  • Use a stick or point out with your hands, fingers to direct participants to the exact part of the chart you are currently discussing

PowerPoint

This is the most popular slide-based presentation program used in business presentations, lectures, and training. It is important to remember that PowerPoints are used to highlight or emphasize important concepts and should contain as little text as possible.

Tips for Supporting Materials

  • Check if training material appropriate to the size of the training room
  • Ensure that the information visible to all participants
  • Make sure that the visual aid is necessary for the type of training
  • Keep it simple and focus on the learning points not on the presentation

Module Eight: Keeping it Interactive

Participant who are actively engaged and take responsibility for their training is an indication of well-designed training program. In this part of the Train the Trainer online course we look at how to keep training sessions more interactive.

How to Keep Participants Engaged

  • Give the participants direction by providing the objectives of the discussion
  • Ensure maximum interaction between all participants by grouping them differently
  • Direct questions to the group
  • Provide participants enough time to process answers or formulate questions
  • Encourage participation by respecting everyone’s answers and thanking them

Using Group Work

  • Provide clear directions, topics for discussion, or case studies
  • Ensure that all required training materials are provided, and all groups have the same amount of training materials
  • Moved about the groups, checking their progress and help when needed

Module Nine: Dealing with Difficult Participants

Trainers do not have the luxury of choosing their students. As a trainer, part of the experience is interacting with students from different walks of life, and personalities. A difficult participant should not derail you from the task at hand or influence the quality of training provided. In this module, we discuss how trainers can deal with difficult participants.

Setting Ground Rules

Establish the learning environment by setting ground rules. Once everyone agrees with the rules, any disciplinary actions from rule infringement can be met more objectively. Things to keep in mind when setting ground rules are:

  • Respect
  • Encouraging participation and fun
  • Keep everything that happens in the training within the confines of the training. Maintain a professional demeanor and prevent experiences in training become a source of gossip.

Identifying Difficult Participants

Joker - this type of person may feel that they are positively contributing to the training session by keeping the atmosphere light. However, being funny requires proper timing not when difficult concepts are being discussed. The solution is to talk with the participant and tell them that there training time is limited.

Cynic - a person who feels unappreciated for his previous ideas and has seen his share of failures. Give them time to voice their objections and acknowledge their opinion.

Indifferent - these are people who do not have any opinion whether positive or negative on the training being provided. They are content with going through the motions and would rather be left alone. To handle this situation, try to identify the cause (previous training experience) or mix activities until you get their attention.

Talker - like the joker, this type of personality craves attention. Approach their opinion and approach them during the break and state the training follows a strict time structure. Ask them to voice out their opinion and direct them to you directly during breaks.

Whisperer - these people try to disrupt training by starting side discussions with other participants. When you notice them starting a discussion, call their attention politely and ask if there is something they want to share. Be consistent to let them know that you are aware of what they are doing without being aggressive.

Module Ten: Tackling Tough Topics

Even professionals with years of actual working experience may find some topics to be difficult. But as a professional, we must constantly keep in our minds that this is part of our job description. When facing difficult topics, here are some tips.

Recognition & Accreditation

The courses offered by Courses For Success are unique as they are taught in a step by step process enabling students to complete them quickly and easily, so that you can obtain your qualification sooner. All students who complete the course receive a certificate of completion. Courses For Success is committed to high completion rates and therefore 100% student satisfaction.

  • Trainers must be qualified with all the training equipment, software to be used (PowerPoint, projectors)

Module Six: Getting Off on the Right Foot

Getting off on the right foot helps you set the right mood for the whole training session.

Greeting Participants Tips

  • Greet participants as they come in the door
  • Request participants to use a name card or tent card so you could address them by their name
  • Ask participants to introduce themselves individually or for large groups, ask a representative to introduce the group as a whole
  • Use an icebreaker
  • Introduce yourself as the trainer
  • Create an open, and welcoming training atmosphere
  • Dress appropriately, formal in a conference setup or in the right safety gear for the training activity
  • Ask participants about their expectations and learning objectives

Module Seven: Delivery Tips and Tricks

In this part of the Train the Trainer online course, we will learn about the different training delivery methods and when to use them.

Visual Aids

Our brain constructs pictures in our minds as people speak to us. This is done to reinforce the concepts learned in training. There are a variety of visual aids being incorporated in training sessions (PowerPoint, flip charts, whiteboards) to facilitate better comprehension among trainees. It can also include the use of videos. When planning to use video, here are key considerations:

  • Videos are perfect for demonstrating motion such as showing how to operate equipment
  • Preview the clip
  • Ensure that all videos are original, or you have appropriate copyright permission
  • Mark video sequences to ensure easy access and playback
  • Check if using video against a training manual is more appropriate
  • Check is the video is adequate in content to deliver training or does it require additional training materials (manuals, lectures) for support
  • Videos should not be presented as a method for changing pace but must be considered as crucial to the training process

Whiteboards

Whiteboards have taken over old-school chalk boards. Basically, these have the same functionality of chalk boards. However, these come with a plus - it can be transferred from one place to another. White boards also offer other advantages over other types of visual aids. These are relatively cheaper and easier to use. Consider using whiteboards when training requires a lot of impromptu or quick edits on the go.

Flip Charts

This visual aid is ideal for small groups. Ideally, flip charts give you an easy to create training tool that requires minimum preparation times. Below are a few tips on how to make flip charts more effective:

  • Prepare some sheets in advance
  • Use highly saturated color (black, blue, red)
  • Leave some room at the bottom of the page
  • Use highlights, markers to emphasize important points
  • Stand to side of the flip chart and face the participants when speaking
  • Use a stick or point out with your hands, fingers to direct participants to the exact part of the chart you are currently discussing

PowerPoint

This is the most popular slide-based presentation program used in business presentations, lectures, and training. It is important to remember that PowerPoints are used to highlight or emphasize important concepts and should contain as little text as possible.

Tips for Supporting Materials

  • Check if training material appropriate to the size of the training room
  • Ensure that the information visible to all participants
  • Make sure that the visual aid is necessary for the type of training
  • Keep it simple and focus on the learning points not on the presentation

Module Eight: Keeping it Interactive

Participant who are actively engaged and take responsibility for their training is an indication of well-designed training program. In this part of the Train the Trainer online course we look at how to keep training sessions more interactive.

How to Keep Participants Engaged

  • Give the participants direction by providing the objectives of the discussion
  • Ensure maximum interaction between all participants by grouping them differently
  • Direct questions to the group
  • Provide participants enough time to process answers or formulate questions
  • Encourage participation by respecting everyone’s answers and thanking them

Using Group Work

  • Provide clear directions, topics for discussion, or case studies
  • Ensure that all required training materials are provided, and all groups have the same amount of training materials
  • Moved about the groups, checking their progress and help when needed

Module Nine: Dealing with Difficult Participants

Trainers do not have the luxury of choosing their students. As a trainer, part of the experience is interacting with students from different walks of life, and personalities. A difficult participant should not derail you from the task at hand or influence the quality of training provided. In this module, we discuss how trainers can deal with difficult participants.

Setting Ground Rules

Establish the learning environment by setting ground rules. Once everyone agrees with the rules, any disciplinary actions from rule infringement can be met more objectively. Things to keep in mind when setting ground rules are:

  • Respect
  • Encouraging participation and fun
  • Keep everything that happens in the training within the confines of the training. Maintain a professional demeanor and prevent experiences in training become a source of gossip.

Identifying Difficult Participants

Joker - this type of person may feel that they are positively contributing to the training session by keeping the atmosphere light. However, being funny requires proper timing not when difficult concepts are being discussed. The solution is to talk with the participant and tell them that there training time is limited.

Cynic - a person who feels unappreciated for his previous ideas and has seen his share of failures. Give them time to voice their objections and acknowledge their opinion.

Indifferent - these are people who do not have any opinion whether positive or negative on the training being provided. They are content with going through the motions and would rather be left alone. To handle this situation, try to identify the cause (previous training experience) or mix activities until you get their attention.

Talker - like the joker, this type of personality craves attention. Approach their opinion and approach them during the break and state the training follows a strict time structure. Ask them to voice out their opinion and direct them to you directly during breaks.

Whisperer - these people try to disrupt training by starting side discussions with other participants. When you notice them starting a discussion, call their attention politely and ask if there is something they want to share. Be consistent to let them know that you are aware of what they are doing without being aggressive.

Module Ten: Tackling Tough Topics

Even professionals with years of actual working experience may find some topics to be difficult. But as a professional, we must constantly keep in our minds that this is part of our job description. When facing difficult topics, here are some tips.
