THE COURSE

This online course is designed to equip you with the skills required to become an effective and consistent technical instructor. Ever changing and complex technology requires a constant need of technical and general training, which can be quite intimidating.

An effective instructor needs a combination of technical skills and presentation abilities to help delegates overcome technical barriers. During this course, you will be guided on how to overcome the fear of speaking in public and addressing technically skilled delegates, how to deliver spellbinding presentations and employ practical, memorable and clear instruction methods. Learning must be challenging, encouraging, reflective and entertaining. It requires both the instructor and the participant to listen, to understand, to agree and to do.

This is a highly engaging course that provides delegates with opportunities to prepare, organise and deliver effective and powerful technical presentations. Delegates will be shown techniques to arouse and maintain pa ticipants' attention, effectively convey information, actively involving the audience, demonstrating concepts and creating powerful visual presentations.

We will show you what to do before a technical training session, how to start a technical training session and what to do during, at the end and after the training session.

  • Deliver outstanding technical training
  • Make powerful and convincing presentations
  • Understand technical training principles and levels of involvement
  • Overcoming learning barriers in the technical classroom
  • Evaluate, assess and address audience needs and requirements
  • Develop effective communication skills
