So what's the difference between the 2-day and 5-day Train The Trainer course in London?

This course is a tour de force of the training world. In five short days, your eyes will be opened to an array of training skills honed and delivered by master trainer Alan Margolis.

  • Days 1 & 2 are the same as the 2-day course (including ILM and CIMA accreditations)

Psychological techniques can be applied to promote inclusion, motivation, and student buy-in. This class allows you to practice them with your colleagues in real time.
