You will spend time live, online learning how to manage all critical aspects of the training function. An optional 30-minute forum after each synchronous session will allow you to discuss the content from that day’s session, ask questions, and network and share ideas with the other training managers in your workshop. Also, 4.5 hours will be required for pre-course work, intersession assignments, and post-course work.
