Train the Trainer


“Trust Me.  I Am A Qualified Trainer” 


Below are links to some resources for the development of a “Train the Trainer (TTT)” type of course.   Some of these contain examples of poor practices that should NOT be copied, in my judgement, while others are very good examples.   Can you tell which are which?   (If not, you may be qualified, but you are definitely not yet competent in this area.)  How do your own Train the Trainer courses compare with these examples?
