How Train-the-Trainer Benefits Organizations
Training an internal trainer to deliver one of ACHIEVE’s proven workshops both enhances organizational know-how and saves costs at the same time. Long term, for medium to large organizations, the train-the-trainer program is the most cost-effective method to train existing and new staff or volunteers. With a certified instructor on staff, organizations can offer as many workshops as needed throughout the year.
