This course focuses on techniques and strategies to plan a robust dangerous goods training program. You will learn how to develop a training session, impart learning through active learning, sequence learning activities to ensure an effective mix and flow, and conclude a training session with an emphasis on knowledge transfer so you can apply the learning back on the job. You will practice a variety of core techniques to lead adult learning, instructional design, and facilitation techniques. In addition, ample opportunity will be available to apply these techniques and strategies during the course.
