Professional Skills in Training



The goal of all training is change or value addition. When professionally designed and executed, training becomes a vehicle for the acquisition of requisite competencies by employees and a powerful tool for organizational change.

Unfortunately, training has become a routine activity in our organizations, poorly designed and executed, and delivering little or no return on investment in training to the organization.

Professional Skills in Training is a hands-on programme designed to equip participants with concepts, techniques, skills and orientation to re-position training as a strategic organizational change tool.
