I haven't used The Trainers Handbook yet, but I have had a good look through it, and I'm impressed with the breadth of coverage. I teach food safety related courses for adult learners from the food industry.

The book updates my knowledge on training needs, types of participants, how to structure sessions, and how to get and interpret feedback. I like the guidelines for selecting effective audiovisual aids. I also like the practical tips and strategies from a very experienced tutor.

The last time I did a train the trainer course was before the Internet was really getting going (remember then, only about 17 years ago!) and so website resources etc were not there; this is a very useful part of any trainers library. In this respect, I like the website tool that includes examples, assignment templates and Internet resources.

The worksheets, checklists, and assessments templates are really useful to anyone starting out, or wanting to refresh their training resources.

An exellent book... 17 July 2008
By A. Shahrokni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've got this book as a reference for the course I'm taking in school of public health. I got it and I finished it in 3-4 days. An excellent book, very easy to read and follow. Excellent surveys and very usefull points. I highly recommend this book for whoever that thinks (s)he want to become a teacher, a trainer and above all trains the trainer.
As a medical resident, I used lessons I've learned from this book and the result was excellent. I'm looking for other books written by the author.

Karen's Excellent Work! 11 May 2012
By Johnathan E. St. John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Training and facilitation are two different skill sets. Karen's work will help fill critical skill gaps for new trainers/facilitators lacking formalized training experience/skill. This book will provide solid foundational learning development skills every well-rounded trainer must know for effectiveness in a field learning organization where we do it all (learning assessment to evaluation). Finally, Karen's work draws an important distinction between facilitating and training. Karen's work provides excellent examples of solid facilitation performance, where facilitators leverage the room's knowledge heavily in the learning process without being a subject matter expert. This comes in handy when you are facilitating learning for a topic that you have little experience or context for training as a subject matter expert-trainer. Or, when you have topic expertise and must strategically leverage it in such a way that it does not prevent learner's from confidently sharing their experiences. As facilitators, we are "Guides on the side, Not the Sage on the Stage". Get this book!
