Due to popular demand, International Well Control Forum (IWCF) have added more dates for the Train the Trainer course.  

The Train the Trainer course is a highly interactive four-day course accredited by IWCF, which is now being delivered virtually. The course will enable instructors to teach effectively and confidently in the classroom, helping them to develop effective training materials and techniques that meet the course objectives and needs of learners. 

By the end of the Train the Trainer course you will be able to: 

  • Develop well-structured training programmes 
  • Deliver well-structured training sessions 
  • Use training approaches suitable for adult learning behaviours 
  • Use effective presentation techniques to fully engage your students 
  • Develop communicative activities to encourage interaction, motivate your students and ease learning 
  • Use a range of evaluation techniques to ensure your training progresses. 

Suitable for both new and experienced instructors, the Train the Trainer program helps instructors develop their teaching skills in both face-to-face and online environments. 

Upcoming course dates with spaces available are: 

Course leader Tracey Jayne Little explains how Train the Trainer helps to develop teaching skills in both face-to-face and online environments.   

“ECTP Train the Trainer gives experienced trainers the opportunity for self-reflection…. an opportunity to take time out from day-to-day teaching and focus on developing their own teaching competency. It allows time for upskilling, updating teaching methods/techniques for both face-to-face and online environments, receiving feedback on teaching performance and reflecting on performance. This enables continued professional development – the very aim of such programmes. 

For new trainers, the programme provides a stepping stone from working in industry to knowing how to adapt that experience to create a conducive classroom learning environment. It sets new trainers up for success as this course covers the three fundamentals of excellence in modern day training – organisation, interaction and communication skills. By covering these in “bite size chunks” and with skill practice and feedback every step of the way, the confidence and teaching competency of new trainers grows each and every day.” 

One of the latest virtual Train the Trainer course was held in February, and a group photo was shared by IWCF to showcase the participants.
