Course Description

During this interactive 2-day course, you will be introduced to the four cornerstones of training: methodology, how to setup & structure a course, how to express yourself and how to teach well. The course is designed to help you keep your delegates constantly engaged and make them remember the content through participation and exercises. This course boosts your confidence and authority in the class helping you to keep your delegates ‘glued’ to your course.

Here are common challenges that trainers face when delivering a course:

  • How can you make the delegates excited about the topic and keep them engaged throughout the course?
  • How can you make the delegates believe that you are the best trainer for them in the field?
  • How can you make the delegates remember the contents of the course for years to come?
  • How can you deliver a course that doesn’t come across as pre-scripted and is tailored to them?
  • How should you structure your course to achieve all of the above while keeping the design easy and adaptable for yourself?

The purpose of this 2-day intensive course is to give you a structured approach to overcome these challenges; it will turn you into a confident, influential trainer that delivers.

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Learn how to avoid passive lecturing
  • Learn how to sequence your courses from the beginning to the end
  • How to keep your delegates engaged at all times through easy-to-follow participatory techniques
  • Get to deliver a mini training session and receive feedback from the tutor and other delegates attending the course
  • Be assessed systematically based on a defined criteria which is discussed in the course
  • Get a 120-page detailed workbook and useful checklists
  • Receive video analysis and critique on your training delivery
  • Receive a CPD accredited certificate of achievement


How to Avoid Lecturing


Complements the Train the Trainer Book

Train the Trainer - Book Front Cover

Train the Trainer:
The Art of Training Delivery

This course is designed and delivered by Dr. Honary who is the author of the popular book on train the trainer. Readers on Amazon and site visitors praise it, and this course is designed specifically to complement the book with the intention to get you practice delivery skills in a supportive environment while receiving feedback.

"Just wanted to thank you for the most illuminating and well delivered course, thank you. I am in a hotel room in Welwyn as my flight is not till tomorrow. I have 2 days work to catch up with but find myself reading one of your books instead. Your introduction to 'Course Design Strategy' has pulled me in deep, I look forward to reading the rest of it. Many thanks again for your time. Kind Regards."


Practice Makes Perfect

This is an extremely hands-on workshop. Numerous focused exercises have been designed thoughtfully to help you learn and memorise what has been taught during the course and to give you an opportunity to try it out for yourself. By working together with other participants in the course, you can see how each technique is used in practice and how to apply them to your own courses. 


A Dynamic Course that Boosts Confidence

All the materials, techniques and exercises in this course have been designed based on solid academic research. Yet this is not a course filled with boring educational theories. This course contains successful practical guidelines which work. We know because we do it all the time and it works.

You will learn how participatory techniques and experiential learning can enhance training.

This course emphasises actions over desires. You will learn to deliver a course that relates to people's everyday training needs instead of focusing on fluffy theoretical stuff.

In this highly practical course you will learn:


On Method

  • How crucial it is to understand learning styles and how to use them
  • How to centre the training on learners rather than centring it on the trainer or the content.
  • What it means to be a facilitating trainer as opposed to a lecturing trainer.
  • How to establish rapport with your delegates and generate trust
  • How to make your content more memorable by appealing to all senses


On Setup

  • What to do exactly from the start of the course to the end of the first break, to win your delegates over and make them believe they are attending a “good one”
  • How to take advantage of the five seconds rule in organising and setting up the physical training environment.
  • How to use visual tools without disengaging, boring or distracting the delegates.
  • How to sequence your content and training from the moment delegates arrive to the moment they leave. You will learn the course structure and see why so many training courses fail because they don’t follow it.
  • How to formulate objectives to increase learning.
  • Why you must Establish the Need and how to do it before you embark on teaching an adult on any subject. Learn why the failure to do so is the primary reason that teaching fails.
  • How to handle questions to meet delegates’ needs.
  • How to finish a course so that delegates leave with a positive feeling knowing what they have learned and why.


On Expression

  • How to feel confident.
  • What actions and thoughts help you control your nervousness.
  • How you can avoid having non-participating delegates by taking pre-emptive actions and avoid all kinds of future problems.
  • What you should be thinking about, just before you start the course, and how it can help you immensely with your training.
  • How to communicate with intention through your body language, voice and expression.


On Teaching

  • How you should distribute your time to increase learning and avoid being a bore
  • How to engage and keep delegate’s attention by using the four-step engagement sequence.
  • What are the four styles of addressing questions and when to use them to engage and check delegates’ understanding.
  • How to formulate questions to make delegates think and maximise learning.
  • How to get the delegates practice the skills by going through useful exercises. Learn how to increase participation and learning.
