Find out more about what is included in our training materials.
All editable material comes in two formats:
When you order training materials from us, the collection of files that you receive contain both versions in separate folders. The course materials are designed using Office 365. The latest version released is Office 2016. The files are backward and forward compatible with Office 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016. They are converted to Office 2003 for those who prefer to use this version instead. Documents are in MS Word, slides are in MS PowerPoint and with some courses MS Excel files are frovided as extra content or handouts.
If you are interested in editing our training materials, you can use any of the available versions such as Office 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016. If you are using Office 2010 or later versions, you can take advantage of all the editing functionality that the software provides to modify the content. Using Office 2010 or later is not a requirement and you can use other previous versions to edit the content as well.
Microsoft released a software update for those who use Office 2003, so they can also edit image compositions made using "Smart Art" in Office 2003 without the need for later versions. If you are using Office 2003, you are advised to use a free upgrade from Microsoft to view MS 2007 files with MS 2003 which allows you to edit the content more efficiently.
Certainly. You receive unlocked source files such as Word and Power Point that you may use to edit or even export to any other format of your choice. Our intention is to make it easy for you to use the content and we believe the more accessible the digital content, the easier it is to use it.
Yes you can. You receive the Training Materials in editable form and the generous license allows you edit the content as you wish. However, you are not allowed to sell the combined training material directly to other trainers or training organisations who would then use it to deliver the training.
Absolutely! We have a variety of courses in the pipeline and they will be made available on a regular monthly basis. Please check back soon for more exciting courses designed with customers’ needs and requests in mind. You can tell us what you need by voting or contacting us.

Yes. We provide samples of slides, workbooks and trainer notes for each course. See each corresponding course for details.
Yes indeed. We have many big brand multinational companies that buy our entire catalogue. We design our training materials with the following specific needs in mind:
Despite the high quality of our training materials, the flexibility and the care that goes into designing them, we offer them at incredibly affordable prices. In addition, to purchase the entire catalogue, we can offer you 50% discount. You can purchase the training materials directly from our site using credit/debit cards or we can invoice you and you can then pay by bank to bank transfer.
We think obtaining training materials is all about saving time. If you have to go through a myriad of locks to access the content or simply receive a few slides and no comprehensive detail on how to run the course, then you have to spend your own precious time to make the course deliverable. We believe this defies the point of purchasing training materials and you might be better off making your own course from scratch.
This is why we think obtaining cheap or low quality training materials would not help any customers who seriously want to grab a course and quickly prepare to meet the demands of the market. It would be simply a waste of money as you have to spend time improving the content yourself. Instead, we believe in quality at affordable prices. We think very hard to make sure that a customer can quickly prepare to deliver a course within days of purchasing the material by going through detailed instructions on how to run the course, how to pace it and to deliver in such a way to leave a positive impact on delegates.
This is our passion and we are constantly using your feedback combined with our experience to improve the design of our training materials so you can spend a minimum amount of time to prepare for them. Find out more about our training materials design process.
All courses contain a number of well-defined sessions. Each session has a specific objective, theory and appropriated exercises to make sure delegates learn the skills during the course. You can easily deliver a course over multiple days by selecting a sub-set of the sessions included in the course. Since the courses comes in an editable format, this is extremely easy to setup based on your needs and delegates.
We offer one of the most generous licenses in the market. We own the content, but we license you to its specific use which means you can add your own logo and brand the content based on your own organisation’s policies.
Our products are bought by a wide range of professionals form various industries. In particular, you can greatly benefit from our products if you are a freelance trainer, HR training manager, training agency, staff manager, trainer, consultant, educational teacher, researcher, manager or facilitator.
Our training materials are used in many industries such as the following:
We cater for all sizes, from single freelance trainers, to SMEs (Small to Medium Enterprises) to large multi-national organisations. Please see a selection of our customers and their testimonials for further details.
By buying Training Materials, you get a head start in your design life cycle. Due to the generous licence we offer, you can easily modify the content and enhance it based on your own needs. At such affordable prices you gain a tremendous amount of time rather than spending your own resources to develop training materials. In addition, we can leverage our expertise in these domains and you can take advantage of freshly researched material thought based on the latest training methodology and accelerated learning principles. In short, we are simply here to save you time and we make careful decisions when designing the product to make sure the content can be picked up by a trainer quickly so it can be delivered to clients as rapidly and as effortlessly as possible.

We have written a comprehensive self-study course on training delivery. This course contains 20 lessons, each exploring a critical training topic in detail and linking to a variety of content on this site as reference. This allows you to explore all related content in one place. We constantly receive feedback and emails from many of our readers who have found this course very useful and educational. As more content is added to the site, we will update these lessons, so you can always use them as reference in the future as well.
We are always interested to know what you think of our training products and content. Knowing what you think allows us to provide quality products in the future. Please share your views by email.
You don’t need to do anything. If you registered on the website, you have been added to the list and you will shortly receive the first part of the self-study course. To make sure that spam filters don’t cause any problems, please consider adding our email address to your whitelist senders.
Each lesson contains a set of questions as homework. The homework helps you to analyse and question your own training performance and relate it to the content of the lesson. The self-analysis will help you to understand which areas you need improve on and what specifically you need to do about those areas. Ideally, at the end of each lesson, you should end up with a number of well-defined actions. You should then schedule these actions to make sure you carry them out.
Some readers like to send their homework to us by email. If you think this will help you to complete your homework (using this as a self-imposed discipline) then by all means send them. We will do our best to get back to you though since we have many readers this can sometimes be overwhelming for our staff. Nevertheless, we are always interested to hear about your views and in particular what you think of each lesson.
The funny thing about spam filters is that they are sometimes temperamental! It is quite possible that they might let 5 lessons through and suddenly decide to filter lesson #6. To avoid missing lessons, please consider adding our email address to the list of safe senders. In any case, you can always contact us for any specific requests and we will be happy to assist.
We provide many training resources and services for free. You will receive our popular train the trainer self-study course, downloadable training resources, sample courses and a subscription to our newsletter to receive further training lessons and new product updates.

Over two days, the course teaches you the most important principles of training. It helps you build a foundation on which you can teach with ease. You will learn how you can prevent almost any problem if you focus on having a solid foundation. The course is not a lecture and you will learn how to avoid lecturing when you train people yourself. Delegates receive real life coaching and get to develop new teaching skills and a confident approach to training. The course is fun, educational and packed with examples and case studies. After this course, you will look at training differently knowing you are equipped with the most proven and pragmatic methods that actually work.
There are many. If we were to prioritise, here is the list:

No. The course starts by focusing on fundamentals such as facilitation training as we believe any trainer should know about them. In many areas the online course expands on the train the trainer book with original content and is much more interactive much like what you experience in an instructor-led course. Topics such as how to structure a course, how to start a course following a systemic formula, how to establish credibility, learning styles, engagement sequence, body language and many others are all new content not present in the book and are designed specifically for this course.
In contrast, the book focuses on topics that are more suitable to be read in a book, such as various research and studies or theoretical aspects of why training should be done in a certain way. We aimed to use the online medium for what is good at, being interactive and more visual. In addition, we revisited each training topic that a trainer must be skilled at and analysed it to see how best it could be presented in an online course, irrespective of what is stated in the book.
The online course is designed with exercises, discussions and repetition at its core with an aim to help you learn, remember and apply the content.
If you are interested to learn about how to design courses based on how people learn, neuroscience, cognitive psychology and the practical art of running courses, consider our instructional design book.
You can go through the online course at your own pace. It covers a similar amount of content to a 2-Day instructor-led course if you were to attend one in person. There are many exercises, discussion opportunities and quizzes, so it depends how quickly or slowly you go through the course.
When you order online, an email receipt is automatically generated and sent to your email. For anything else please contact support.

For example, you can discuss presentation skills, handling questions, understanding learning styles, how to keep delegates engaged and so on. This can be for instructor-led training, online training, live virtual and the like.
At the end of a session you will be given assignments and actions to help you practice and address various training issues. These can then be discussed in the next session.
The coaching package comes with two one-hour sessions as well as evaluations and e-mail support outside coaching sessions to help support you in your progress.
You can purchase as many coaching packages as you need.
There are no requirements for the coaching sessions.
