The Training Clinic

Welcome to The Training Clinic and our special brand of train-the-trainer workshops.  The Training Clinic is America’s train-the-trainer leader.

We specialize in state-of-the art design, delivery, management and evaluation of training through the development and delivery of workshops, certificate programs, on-line courses, publications, training products, job aids and consulting. Since 1977, we have trained over 150,000 people on 5 continents with the assistance of our over 20 Master Instructors located both in the U.S. and abroad, each averaging over 15 years of experience and previously holding key organizational positions.

Back by Popular Demand...Public Workshops!

Check our website at www.thetrainingclinic.com or connect with us on Facebook or LinkedIn for the latest information about our well known series of public workshops. You can take a single workshop or combine them (with a project or two) for a much lauded Training Clinic Certification.

Just-in-Time Training: Each one or two day workshop covers just those skills you need at this moment in your professional development.  You won’t sit through or pay for 3, 4, 5 days or more of content that you don’t need now, or maybe ever.

Practical Content: You’ll recognize and identify with the issues raised because they are the same concerns you are coping with each working day.  Your workshop instructor is an active training/HRD consultant who will share with you real world experiences.  We focus on practical application, not theory. You will work on your organization’s real issues and develop action plans and materials to use on the job the very next day.

Constantly Updated Content: Our workshops are revised regularly with input from past participants, instructors and research into state-of-the-art materials to make sure the content is current, reliable and fresh.

Involving and Challenging Materials:  Each workshop is designed using the latest learning techniques and then analyzed in 15-minute segments (using a Training Clinic copyrighted, exclusive technique) to select the best method to communicate the content.  We hold your interest through effective use of lecturettes, discussions, case studies, inventories, audiovisuals, role plays, self assessments, checklists, planning tools and more.  Lectures are kept to a minimum.

Master Practitioner Instructors: Each of our instructors is an active training/HRD consultant with 15-30 years of directly related experience in the subjects they are teaching.  Daily they advise and solve problems for their clients in business and government.  They are not captive employees who simply repeat the same content day after day.  They are active practitioners working in the real world and mastering today’s training problems.  You’ll learn from their real world examples, advice and answers.  Importantly, our instructors model that they teach and train through demonstration of each technique rather than by lecturing about it.

Experience:  The Training Clinic is celebrating its 37th anniversary as America’s train-the-trainer leader.  Share the experiences of hundreds of thousands of people who have improved their skills by attending a Training Clinic workshop.

Value Pricing: Why pay more for similar training?  Stretch your training dollars.  Our prices end where others begin, and if you are not happy with the results you don’t pay!

Training Clinic Bonuses:

• Limited class size (average is under 16) so your individual objectives are solicited and addressed.

• A comprehensive workshop manual that becomes a useful reference tool following the workshop.  It contains valuable checklists, instruments, class notes, job aids, case studies and exercises.

• Complimentary breakfast pastry, coffee and soda breaks.

• A personalized certificate of completion, signed by your instructor.

• Continuing Education Credits: 1.3 CEUs for a two day program; .65 CEUs for a one day program.

• Money Back Guarantee: The on-the-job benefits of your Training Clinic workshop will last you a lifetime.  We guarantee the quality of our workshops.  If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with a workshop for which you have paid, simply return your workshop materials with a written explanation.  The Training Clinic will give you credit toward another workshop of comparable price or will refund your registration fee.

Cancellation Policy
