Are your New Trainers doing a good job?

Based on research with many of our customers, they often complain that their new internal trainers are no performing the way they wanted. 

The Learning MatchMaker aims to help many customers look at options and recommendations to improve the overall health of their Training Department.  Hence we have researched this rating list to rate your New Trainers:

  • Was the classroom neat, attractive, inviting?

  • Did participants understand what they were to be doing that day?

  • Were clear instructions given prior to each exercise? Did the trainer remind participants to use other materials and resources to assist them with the exercises?
