Begin at any time and set the course schedule that is right for you. Workers are the most underutilized capital in any industrialized country. A useful definition of training is the provision of skills and knowledge that enable the learner to be a full contributing partner with the goals of the organization. But telling is not teaching. And effective instruction must be based on a sound needs analysis that produces valid learning goals. In turn, achievement of these learning goals demands a defensible assessment strategy that not only confirms achievement of the goals in the learning environment, but the extent to which those goals actually transfer to the job, and the extent to which those goals actually enhance performance. This course highlights these components of a modern training system applicable to any industry or sector. This course can be used as one of two electives required to complete the Diploma in Health, Safety and Environmental Management (SHEM) offered through Great Plains College.
