The APICS Train the Trainer course has been developed to introduce instructors to the basics of effective instruction. We will be exploring some tools that will help you effectively prepare to teach and will provide ideas on how to enhance lesson plans to increase your effectiveness in the classroom.

The course has been inspired by APICS instructors and leaders who understand the important role instructors play in the organization and by the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD), an association that provides criteria by which instructor success is measured.

Please note that this course is about the techniques of effective instruction and can be applied to any subject matter. This course is not designed to cover the instruction of any specific APICS body of knowledge topic.

Please Note: minimum requirements to attend this course include certification in the material (either CPIM or CSCP) and an active APICS membership
