M. Young

The material and the way the class is structured are phenomenal. You took a daunting task and made me quite confident. The instructor is knowledgeable, personable, and engaging!

Paul H.

If you need to develop your course design and development skills, strongly consider this course. Lots of practice, discussion, and practical applications. As a long-time trainer, I have strong experience in training and facilitating, but limited experience in formal design and development. This workshop filled in all the gaps!
