During the third quarter, TrainingPros is examining the informal side of learning. The quieter days of summer make us reflect on more laidback approaches to training and looking for ways to sneak in the L&D. And we think it’s important to really examine the ways in which your organization responds to training. With that in mind, we offer one of our Learning Perspectives articles that focuses on training delivery options and case studies from your peers. Our second article offers an overview on the TrainingPros course catalog and potential for your learning department to shake up your offerings with one of our tailored classes delivered in your locations.
Creating more comfortable and informal classroom-based training situations could stem from using an outside instructor to deliver a program for you. Our Service Spotlight features TrainingPros’ instruction & facilitation offering and how our consultants can bring new ideas to your company. Our Upcoming Events detail the best of L&D in late summer and into the fall while our BRX Partnership sidebar offers the latest radio program guests from our southeast market. Enjoy this issue, and contact us with any learning & development staffing needs.
Training Delivery Options
Training delivery methods today travel a full spectrum. On one end, you will see a classroom setting, complete with lecterns, overheads, and handouts. And moving along that spectrum, you will encounter applications on handheld devices with pre- and post-class assessments downloaded from and uploaded to a Cloud-based learning management system (LMS). And while one seems old and tired and the other seems innovative, both have a valid role to play in today’s wide and varied world of L&D.
How do learning leaders determine the best approach – or series of approaches – for their internal customers? We posed those questions for L&D experts at Training 2015 as part of our Learning Insights radio series produced in conjunction with Business RadioX. What we learned may surprise and even inspire you and the work you do.
TrainingPros is pleased to let you know that we have assembled a wide variety of courses that are available for delivery at your locations. We invite you to take a deeper look at our course catalog offerings.
Our offerings span a wide variety of topic areas such as customer focus, communication skills, leadership development, motivation others, interpersonal relationships and self-management, attracting & managing a diverse workforce, leading & managing change, and leading teams. Each course page offers additional details on what’s covered in the course, its duration, the maximum number of attendees, and target audiences. Your TrainingPros relationship manager can provide more information on pricing for each course based on your requirements.
Learning & development conferences are a great way to broaden your skill sets, get inspired, and network with thought leaders and L&D professionals from all over the country. Mark your calendars to check out some exciting opportunities later this summer and into the early fall:
Atlanta’s weekly Learning Insights Radio show returned to the virtual airwaves in 2016 to showcase TrainingPros’ hometown learning leaders and consultants who implement innovative L&D strategies to benefit their companies and clients.

Many times, TrainingPros will recommend an instructor or facilitator placement to plug those short-term needs that clients have with delivering training in quick bursts. However, with our current focus on creating a more informal environment for learning & development, it makes sense to recommend an outside instructor on occasion. Using a resource who has a lot of experience in the delivery of materials from a wide variety of organizations can really breathe new life into your own instructor-led training sessions.
TrainingPros maintains an excellent database of professional instructors ready to support any large-scale training implementation. In addition to delivering predefined course content, our professional instructors can also work with groups to facilitate less structured activities, decision-making processes, or team building events. External, objective facilitators are sometimes in the best position to carry off the most efficient outcomes. Our instructors have deep experience and certifications across various content areas and with off-the-shelf training programs. To get started with an instructor or facilitator placement, contact your TrainingPros relationship manager today.
