Organize and Deliver the Training Course

Training & Development / Organize and Deliver the Training Course

Our trainers envision the flow of the training course before it begins. The more the trainer can visualize the format of the training course, the more prepared he/she is for any questions or problems that may arise. A prepared trainer is a relaxed and more effective trainer.

Questions that we feel need to be addressed when organizing a training course include:

  • How will the topics be introduced?
  • Would a question be a good way to start?
  • Which training methods will strengthen the message?
  • What questions are the trainees likely to ask?
  • What questions should the trainer ask the trainees?
  • When should breaks be planned in the session?

Planning also involves developing the schedule or program for the course. This sets out the course duration and the division of training sessions for each day.

A program for the training course is useful to:

  • Guide the trainers in leading the course
  • Organize the flow of information
  • Ensure a balance between theoretical information and practical sessions
  • Prevent repetition of information between different trainers
  • Include adequate breaks
  • Allow adequate time for all sessions
  • Ensure the interest and motivation of the trainees
  • Summarize and conclude the session and look ahead to the following session

Attention spans vary from person to person, with the subject matter involved and with the situation. In lecture-oriented training sessions, presentation should generally not exceed 30 minutes. Trainers often allow 40–45 minutes for practical and casework sessions. They also allow time for adequate interaction with the audience when using questions, exercises and visual aids.

Breaks in a lecture presentation such as demonstrations, illustrations or question periods have the effect of refreshing the training session. It is important however that the breaks support the main body of the message. Also, time is allowed periodically (every 1-2 hours) to allow trainees to stretch their legs and use the facilities.
