Was concerned about the length but the overall information was crucial
I am doing several seminar in Japan.I got lots of hints to improve my seminar contents.All participants including me were well engaged actively.I'm sure going to review seminar materials from time to time.I appreciate your awesome seminar extended to me.
Great meeting facility location
Excellent course to demonstrate the different methods and styles of facilitating a training course!
Pam created an open and engaging atmosphere that made learning the material fun and easy! This class has fundamentally changed the way I approach training.
Pam is awesome. I have learned so much!!!
Varied approaches used & taught & chance to practice as well as observe - very effective.Pam modeled many behaviors and issues for us.
The class was effective and I have some great takeaways that I will be able to implement in my training
Very enjoyable and enlightening class. Pamela is an amazing instructor.
Pam kept us engaged and made sure certain concepts and topics were easy to remember
Fantastic course. I learned many things I can use right now.
The class was great. It provided me with applicable tactics I can use immediately.
Instructor was very knowledgeable and engaging. She was able to apply the material to a wide variety of student experience, some limited, some advanced, without alienating anyone. The materials were applicable to the session and the instructor was able to share real life experience to enhance the course content. The instructor made an effort to get to know each participant and to gain an understanding of what their individual goals were. My only suggestion for improvement would relate to the fact that the first day I had difficulty following along with the materials (page number, which book we were working from) but other than that the course was great!
The information presented was relevant to my daily duties and I look forward to implementing it throughout my training program.
At times I felt the presenter had never seen the materials before. I also felt like there was time that was spent doing group activities that could have been better spent covering the actual materials in the course developed content. I feel like I still need to review all the materials and hopefully will be able to determine what the intent of the topic item was suppose to convey.
I found this class to be very relevant in furthering my career as a training professional. Whether you have been training for 1 year or 10 years this is a great course.
Maybe too many activities. Too much moving around can derail memory absorption.
This could be done in 2 days. Carole was fantastic, but I don't think we have to spend the entire last day for presentations.
Content needs to be revised.
Eye opening as well as enjoyable.
Information was easy to understand. Carole shared many personal stories to help particular sections duing training resonate and be more relatable.
As a 20+ year facilitator, this course was a great refresher to reinforcement quality standards with latest methodologies.
I learned a lot from Carole. The class (participants) also help me to understand a lot more than I expected.
Our Facilitator Carole was amazing!!! One of the best facilitators ive ever had!!
This has been an amazing, enriching class. Carole is an excellent facilitator. Her knowledge and wisdom about training and working with people was just amazing.
Very well managed training. Really felt like expertise was being shared, not just through the materials, but through the trainer herself. Helped facilitate the training through the distractions from other attendees so that we could focus on the material and not the distraction. I really got a lot out of it.
I liked that the training and instructor allows participants to be themselves and adjust to the Platinum Rule; do unto others as â€œtheyâ€ want to be done.
Excellent trainer and group involvement!
Trainer was knowledgeable of the material and was able to use this information and apply it to each company's needs.
I was concerned coming into this that it would be something that would not keep me engaged. I was wrong.... the course was very engaging and I gained a lot of knowledge that I can take back to our training program!
The course was well conducted and materials were relevant
Good content, very useful information. I will definitely use the information.
Very impressive and useful. I truly enjoyed my time.
Been awhile since I attended this type of training. Was glad to get latest tips.
Karen was outstanding! Clearly an expert and passionate about training, she effectively engaged the course participants using the methods mentioned in the book and leveraged her experience and the class's experience to enhance discussion. Also shout out to Marie for handling the logistics of the room and the paperwork.
The training was great. It was interactive and kept all of us involved and interested! Annette was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable makes it look easy how she gets everyone to participate, even when it's obvious they don't want to.
Could have been a longer class.
There are each specified tips and theory.
Excellent instructor and activities to understand and be able to use the methods discussed. One thought is to incorporate the slides more into the participant guide. Difficult to know where to best take notes.
I found this class to be very beneficial. At first it seemed like common sense and not something that would benefit the content. However middle of day two things started to click. Making us earn the knowledge than just giving it to us, not allowing us to zone out. I feel like I have the tools and guidance to know go back and be focused through training creation.
Got better with each day. Built real community and a safe place for learning and experimentation. I liked the format and the learning that happened in every activity.
Instructor/trainer was excellent. She gave me many tools I could use not only at work but in life as well.
It really worths coming from different places by planes
This program provided me with skills to actively engage training participants with new, innovative approaches.
I am starting from scratch when it comes to my company's training agendas. I found this class incredibly informative and beneficial for the task that lays ahead of me.
Great training, better than expected. Would definitely recommend it to others.
I may be biased having already taken the Instructional Design course. This course was highly recommended as a follow up course to expand upon training essentials. I felt the added book was beneficial, as well as a few key points (i.e. addressing distractors and behaviorally assessing your class). However, I felt that this course should have been added as another day to the ID seminar. A large majority lf the material from the ID course was repeated in this class, but without the depth.
Our Trainer, Dianne was great! Awesome energy and knowledge. A very interactive class where I learned so much more then I expected!
I really enjoyed working with this small group through this learning experience. It was nice to see all of the different training concerns and techniques used by others in the various industries which the attendees were from.
It had good information provided. I feel that it was all rushed and not enough time spent for expansion of the materials or further discussions. At times I felt that the material was jumped from one area and to another. This should have been 4 days as all material was crammed into 3 days. I feel as though the poor instructor was having to cut off attendees comments because of time restraints. Questions that were placed on the "Parking lot" were discussed only with the individual who had written it down. The answer wasn't shared with the entire class. I feel like more sharing could have taken place but due to limited time it was cut off.
Diane is a fantastic facilitator. Excellent content
Packed with useful and applicable information
I learned a lot of new training techniques had a great time
Donald Eugene B.
The class was highly effective. The instructor kept us engaged and learning the entire time. The content will be very helpful going forward.
The course was full of information, it was engaging and the instructor did a great job of engaging everyone on their personal level.
Jill was fantastic! Her techniques were amazing, and I cant wait to use them myself.
Very good information. Progression was easy to follow. Techniques were explained and demonstrated. Very interactive. People from various job disciplines made it interesting.
The course was engaging and really shed light on different techniques to encorporate in my own trainings.
I find that trainers can be one of the most difficult audiences to facilitate training for and Mel did an exceptional job. She not only made the 3 days fun, informative and interactive, she went above and beyond to ensure all of our different training styles were acknowledged and discussed.
Training was interactive and engaging.
The class will benefit my instructors who will be taking this in the future. Highlighters and mechanical pencil should be supplied. Meloney was well organized and did a great job!!!
Meloney, is a excellent trainer, she was very positive helped me to be a better trainer. I will recommend her anytime. I just loved her class....
This was a very useful training and the various background of the attendees gave an even deeper dimension to the principles taught in the class.Also this class will definitely help people to provide more efficients training and even presentations
Overall I think the training went well. It would have been more useful, if our trainer took examples of challenges from the participant's work and gave practical ways to adapt new training techniques. Many of my classmates agreed that, while informative, it was challenging to find ways to adapt our work to the techniques provided.
As a new trainer this was a very beneficial training and Mel was awesome! Great info about how to develop training.
it was such a great experience. Mel was so friendly and very informative. I learned so much from her not just from the content delivered but from her friendly personality. She was always open to help us with questions that we had outside of the training that we can apply to our day to day work life.
The overall material of the class was fantastic! I learned so much from the class.One thing that I did not like was that Karen split us into two groups for our final presentation. She did not listen to my 15 minute presentation at all. I mentioned this to my boss's who have both been to Training the Trainer and they were very disappointed with that as well. I would have liked her feedback on the presentation I worked on all week.Also, she was very strict on having cellphones. I understand her reasoning, but we are technically working during the seminar. We should be able to have our cellphones for work related needs. We are adults and know how to be respectable about them.Karen was a great teacher, however, I felt that my ideas that I would ask her about were shot down negatively. We are all trainers and should have an open mind when it comes to ideas. She could have turned the ideas around in a positive way rather than negative.Lastly, I did not feel prepared for the final presentation. Karen said we could have used props or material from previous classes we have taught at work. I did not know this coming into the class or I would have brought material for the presentation. (example: a powerpoint to explain the presentation I was going to teach on). I was thousands of miles away from work and I was not prepared. I feel that an email should have gone out 2 weeks prior to the class starting explaining material items you may want to bring to the class.
I really enjoyed this course and the atmosphere the instructor created
Excellent course! She kept it exciting and engaging the whole time.
the instructor was informative and positive about everything we did. her ability to answer all of our questions and keep it fun was remarkable.
I have taken similar training courses before and I can say this one was the best. I was kept attentive the entire course and all information and discussion was relevant to what I wanted to get out of it
Being a first time new trainer, I was initially intimidated. However by the end of the class I was so much more confident in my abilities to train a class no matter what their skill set is.
This by far is one of the best classes I have taken. I learned several new techniques that I look forward to including in my future trainings. The only suggestions I have is to have the classes start earlier 8:00 vs. 9:00 and if possible provide morning and afternoon snack...
Great execution by Mel. Really helped to refocus my future training plans.
Masterful facilitation of the class. The instruction and experiences discussed in class had direct relevance to my goals for attending the class.
It was an excellent course. It met all of my expectations and much more!
I got more from the course than I thought I would. I think it will help us create a better training program.
Overall I was nervous to prepare and lead a presentation. No previous experience doing that. That inhibited my focus after learning that. Otherwise, I would like to have prepared more in advance to put into practice what my goals were instead of a made up presentation.
Karen was a great instructor!! I have been training for about 9 years and there was some good material and content to take away.
Karen, the instructor, made this training really fun. There was great content that was covered some of which I knew but was a great refresher.
I loved that Pam catered to our need individually and as a group when we ask specific questions.
Instructor was well prepared,conveyed the material well and accommodated various learning styles,
Jill was well versed on the subject matter and made understanding it very easy, she gave good feed back and other ideas on how to present as well as resources
Trainer (Carole) was very knowledgeable with topic, shared many experiences which are very important as far as bringing it home on the topic, excited to do what she does, and was able to answer all my questions. I left with more skills that will only help me improve my training skills. I really think that all the team activities made a huge difference for me, it changed my previous opinion of them not being important, they do make a difference.
Ms. Carole was a excellent instructor. I loved the fact that she let us get comfortable with one another and the exercises she let us do was incredible. I really learned a lot and plan on doing a lot of what I learned at my job.
It was really good to understand other effective ways to train. i understand now the bigger picture of how to lead a group
Very informative, could use a couple extra breaks each day.
The class has been very engaging and informative.
It was a great training event, learned a lot.
Karen is an excellent facilitator - she effortlessly managed the dynamics of the class, while balancing the course material.
Karen offered a variety of tips and tricks that were relevant to the teaching I currently do. It was a great refresher.
This training is exactly what I needed as a new trainer.
I was able to leave the class fully prepared with the tools and knowledge to be able to provide a training section in my employment.
The facilitator was very knowledgeable and shared her experience that was applicable to the seminar
As someone hoping to break into the field, this seminar gave me a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of training and provided me with the confidence to convey this knowledge in interviews.
The facilitator was GREAT. I learned a great deal.
Carole presented the material in an engaging, entertaining, and relevant manner. She is a true professional, and has a breadth of experience that she was happy to share with us. She provided useful concepts that can be applied to my workplace and future trainings.
I learned lots of new techniques for providing effective training within my company. Our instructor was very professional and she taught the course in a fun way. I was engaged throughout the whole training.
I enjoyed the way the material was set up. It was easy to follow and take notes. Applying what we learn with activities is a great way to retrain the material. There was so much material that was helpful and I can see being able to implement right away in my job.
The class showed where we were lacking in training, but also showed that we also need to attend the instructional design class as well.
This training was excellent! It provided a lot of strategies that I can use to engage the learners and ensure the trainings I deliver incorporate more than just lecturing. The instructor was also very knowledgeable and engaging.
She just knew what she was doing, bottom line.

Needs to use Asian accent of English considering international participation
Good templates to build off of.
Our instructor was very knowledgeable and I was able to learn some new training material that I can use in my job.
The book exercises were a little confusing.
I thought is was very beneficial for me. The facility and facilitator were excellent.
The facilator was knowledgeable, interesting and engaging.
Class size was good. Facilitator was very good.
The pacing, content, and instructor of the course were all excellent. The facilities and staff at the AMA Conference center were great.
Excellent course and instructor. I walked out with a total understanding of all objectives.
Highly engaging with a very knowledgeable instructor. I loved the pace of the course, the activities, and the group interaction as well as the size of the class (6 people).
The seminar was very helpful and met my needs. I was especially looking for a way to engage the audience when delivering rather dry material and was able to glean many good ideas
For someone with zero previous trainer experience, this was an excellent course to familiarize myself with the complete process. I now feel very well prepared to deliver effective training.
Very engaging. Gave class several opportunities to try different approaches. Provided on going feedback which is helpful.
Very good overall experience perfectly directed to the audience level of experience
Very informative and her approach on training allowed us to think for ourselves and not hand feed us the techniques or information. Definitely a class that needs to be hands on.
Annette was a great instructor, she worked very hard to make sure that we were all engaged and getting useful information from the course. Great amount of knowledge and very professional, you can tell she is passionate about her work and wants the students to be successful.I felt too much time was spent on alternate training methods, there was too much breaking into little groups and discuss topics like jigsaw learning, games, or experiential. For example there are some great chapters in the book about lectures, presentations, and classroom management it would have be nice to cover them as a class.Many of the exercises we covered didnâ€™t apply to a technical training environment.For example breaking into groups and doing the exercise about Abigail, Gregory and Slug. I see no application for this in most training environments. This is a case where real world practicality outdoes the academic theory of adult learning.I wished the course had focused more on how we as instructors can improve our speaking, teaching, and classroom management styles.
I received great information on myself (personality/behavioral), and great ways to engage the class early to get a better understanding of what they are looking for in the class and how to adapt. A lot of the abstract work didn't directly relate to technical training, but the majority is material that will help me in my classes.
The instructor used the training material in a way I've never experienced before. I was able to retain information outlined in the course as well as develop skills based on the teaching methods of the instructor. Overall I was thoroughly impressed with my first AMA experience and look forward to taking courses in the future.
Mary Beth R.
Although there was required pre-course preparation, this was never addressed. I even had my supervisor preview and add comments as required. Recommend discontinuing this pre-course prep work or better address in the course.
The instructor is very knowledgeable and kept the entire classroom engaged the entire time. She kept the subject as light as possible. There was plenty of hands on processes used.
Amazing job done. I feel like I learned so many tools to use in my training classes. The environment was so friendly and comfortable. This is the first training where I did not want to fall asleep or have to struggle staying awake. Our trainer Pam was so real and just so involved in the training. She knows how to keep it fun.
Pamela was very engaging and down to earth. She provided excellent real world
I will now be a much more confident trainer after this course.
This was probably one of the best classes I've taken at AMA. At least in my top five. Excellently delivered, materials were useful and clear. Plus they're designed to be a good reference later to go back to. I always appreciate that. I would highly recommend it.
The training course exceeded my expectations. The facility was excellent and the trainer (Annette Cremo) was absolutely excellent. I gained more than I could have imagined. I would love to take another course from her in the future.
Very Good seminar. Covered all the major topics that needed to be covered.
I absolutely loved this course. Annette was exrenely engaging, encouraging and knowledgeable and I am thankful I had the opportunity to attend such a robust course with such an impactful instructor. I am already looking for another course to sign up for!
Overall I feel this class was well worth the time and money. There was a lot of material to cover in 3 days but I feel I have the basics down to start implementing some of what I learned immediately, and the materials needed to continue learning.
A lot of practical advice that help to make a class interactive
Good ideas shared
Great energy in the room!
This training was difficult for me. I learned an enormous amount of things, but it was mostly new to me which is what made it difficult. Jill broke it down and explained everything that I asked about which was very helpful. I liked the pace of the course, the modules made it easy to follow. I also learned other new things which will most certainly require that I take additional training in those areas. She also provided outside reading material, both books and websites which will become a further resource to me. I am glad I took this training and would recommend it to anyone who needs to be a trainer.
This training has truly changed the way that I view how to train. There are so many techniques that I learned that I will be able to implement into my training program.
Jill is in the top ranking of my all time favorite trainers. The 3 days flew by quickly.
This class took what I thought was training and turned it on it's head. It was incredibly eye opening. The techniques and approach to adult learning were very impressive. Extremely helpful class. Pam showed so much enthusiasm and cared and pushed us as a class. We became very close and bonded during class. This helped us push each other at every turn. We had a presentation at the end of the class and our group did great. Everyone had their own style. Great experience!
Great training environment
Satisfied with the content and the instructor
The class was great. I have many opportunities to take this back to work.
Great learning experience
Pam kept us involved and I came out of this with more tools and confidence than when I came in.
I attained most of my needs
The "Training the Trainer" seminar was interesting, interactive, informative and well delivered.
Carole is so insightful. Really opened my eyes to new ideas and personal barriers I need to address in order to become a better facilitator.
Carole did an amazing job engaging us and teaching us great techniques to take back for our own trainings.
A details host of tools to engage and inform your trainees
Good class. Helped to think about things differently and change perspectives on the issue of training.
Excellent presenter, very knowledgeable in all subjects, very thought provoking
Very informative. I liked all the activities. Class was constantly moving . Very well versedCarol is an excellent facilitator
One of the most impactful training sessions I have ever attended. Instructor inspired confidence, was engaging, and helped me to grow as a professional even in such a short time. Tools were invaluable. Took away lots of ideas to bring back to my workplace.
I thought it was great! Learned a lot about myself and got valuable feedback as a presenter. I'd highly recommend the course
Learned lots of new tips. Very engaging. Would have liked more time to prepare for final presentation.
The seminar was engaging and provided good activities for use in delivering training. The resources provided were relevant and useful. It was a good refresher of important things to consider when teaching adults. The facilitator was friendly and engaging.
There was a lot of valuable information presented in a fun and organized way. The trainer kept our attention throughout the 3 days, kept it interesting and created a comfortable environment in which to allow each of us to be ourselves, make mistakes, and accept constructive criticism. I not only learned a lot from the trainer Jill, but also from each and every participant I met in the seminar.
The learning world needs more trainers like Jill, she is a true Master Trainer. In three days Jill showed me a different side of training that I would of not seen with any other trainer.
Jill made the training fun and engaging. The subject matter was fluid and seamless.
Jill is an outstanding teacher and facilitator . Her life experience and devotion to teaching her craft to new learners is awesome.
This seminar is really good orgainze, I hope result of this seminar is helpful future my job.
The trainer was very knowledgeable on the subject matter. So much so, she was able to guide me through to a unique solution to an issue I am having.
Very well presented and tailored to the needs of the class.
The session has been very helpful for my learning needs
This was a great training. I would have appreciated more and longer breaks. It felt very rushed. The lunch break was half over by the time you went to the bathroom and walked out of the facility. Leaving very little time to actually eat.
Dianne was full of energy and kept me very engaged. She's full of knowledge and a great resource for many!I was disappointed in the fact that the book store was not open. I would have liked to use my coupon that was available to me.It was not clear in the paperwork and receipt provided at the time of purchase and registration what I should expect for the day. In the future, it would be nice to know that only beverages were provided and that we would be given an hour lunch on our own.
The energy from the trainer was great and I learned a bunch of new things. Very satisfied.
I learned a lot that can be applied with my training.
Loved it very interactive.
The information was great, the presentation was way off. I was disappointed due to the fact that I have received so many good reviews from my peers. The presenter had the class confused due to the style of her delivery.
The course have the ideal method to proper present in public a training, presentation.. etc.Gave me technic on how to be relax and reduce anxiety before and during the presentation.
A lot of good techniques was shared when you're dealing with different platforms, enjoyed he class
This was a very interesting course. It started off slow but picked up the last two days. Bonnie had a lot to teach us, Which I will put into practice in my future endeavors. I would definitely like to do this again with a different instructor to get their tips and tricks of the trade. All in all this was a great three days spent. I do wish that it was more than just three days. I am sure there are a lot more that could have still be learned from Bonnie my instructor. Thank you for such a great experience.
Disappointed breakfast and lunch was not provided.
I was very disappointed. I did not get any benefit from this course at all.
Ameet does an amazing job of making people feel comfortable and this drives everyone to learn.
Our facilitator followed the same techniques as the train the trainer AMA material. By doing so, it provided us the opportunity to see the material in action. Practice what we learned in a safe workshop environment. Great class atmosphere. How valuable is that! I would highly recommend this class.
Very involving topics
A very engaging class. I feel like a more confident and knowledgeable trainer!
Very engaging and fun
Karen did a very good job in facilitating all this training session is a very interactive way.If I had chance and your conducting different type of training. I will for sure come and attend your training.
I had difficulty understanding instructions for the exercises and activities.
Great and very practical
Instructor was amazingly well prepared, and used fantastic exercises to keep us engaged and learning.
Good class with helpful hints. Probably could have been done in 2 days.
I feel like this would be a great class to take if you have absolutely never led any kind of class or presentation. I personally, as a sales trainer, feel like little of this class was relevant to my situation. This class was a very high-level overview of how to develop a corporate training plan. I consider it more of an outline of what to do, to me there was very little detail on what to do as a trainer or how to do it.The class was given a very brief social style lesson, having studied this subject in depth I found the dabble into the topic was perhaps more confusing than helpful. It is not a topic than can be understood in an hour. I also feel like we spent an enormous amount of time doing activities that could have been substituted for more detailed learning on the topics of the class. Changing seats daily and doing guided meditation are definitely not what I signed up for.It is my opinion the course instructor was not fully present while teaching the class. I feel like there were some personal issues she was dealing with at the time of the class that was taking priority over teaching the class. Bringing up politics and personal details throughout the class were, in my opinion, poor taste and had no place in the classroom.My hope is the book we received at the end of the training contains the details I was hoping to receive in the class. From my experience, I would not recommend.
Karen was knowledgable about the topic, but it felt as if she had not taught the class in a while
Instructor was patient and gave valuable tools for the trainers to use, to help us be successful.
Good information. Class involvement and speaking opportunities were good.
Karen, the instructor, was a great model of how to be an excellent trainer. AMA course materials were good, but Karen has facilitated the training sessions above and beyond my expectations.
I feel like this course was okay but really didn't offer any new ideas / concepts. I was hoping for a more refreshed approach (21st century) to training.
Very informative training, that had lots of real applications for mr.
Great class . Learned a lot of fun tips.
Trainer was very knowledgeable and presented information in a very easy to follow way.
loved the class! So glad it was a small group and the facilitator was excellent!
I was engaged the whole time - it was fantastic!
Carole is an excellent instructor and is very thorough in her presentations for training the training course.
Carole helped me to feel very comfortable in a situation that, for me, could have been stressful. I was able to learn a great deal from her, and the rest of the class. It was a valuable experience.
It was great.
Exactly what i was looking for. Met my needs
Love the engagement and participant level.
I absolutely loved the facilitator and the class energy- Dr. Carole was able to harness the group's energy and turn it into an incredibly productive environment. I have so many take-aways from the course. There were times where I was skeptic on the outcome of an activity, but Dr. Carole was able to tie the result back to the core objective every time. Will definitely be attending another session!
Great class and loved that there were just 10 of us because I felt like we were able to have a lot of good group discussions without getting too far off topic. Lots of great take-aways that I will be able to use in my day to day job.
Dora Lynne P.
Nadine was a excellent instructor. She was very engaging.
The presenter showed great interest in the material and maintained a clear agenda and objectives for the workshop. Nadine also checked in with each of us on a regular basis to ensure that we were getting what we wanted out to the workshop.
the course was great, very interactive... I would recommend AMA at least offer snacks or a vending machine.
I think this class should include a module for technology applications related to training, such as learning management systems, and other softwares available to develop training tools. Also there was one day when there was a class next door and could heard them, it was distracting at times
Very information. Nadine was great, and had the entire class engaged.
Nadine was an amazing instructor and really made the material relatable toy job. I would highly recommend this class to all!
Nadine was awesome! Very engaging and knowledgeable! She executed the teaching of specific components with ease!
Great training - you may think that is not much you can learn in just 3 days but actually I learned a lot nad I am already using the knowledge I gained.
I enjoyed the class and specifically all the activities Karen did to get us all involved in real business discussions. She is a very good teacher who I looked forward to seeing all 3 days and would recommend to anyone.
Sessions were well led and contained valuable information.
Well organized. Very thought provoking.
The concepts of the program were very beneficial and will support me in my role as a trainer.The facilitator was very knowledgeable and took an interest in the learning of all participants.
This class was great. It's been a long time since I've taken a class that I was this interested in the content and had great co-participants that really kept the course engaging/challenging/interesting, etc.
The training was excellent - my personal situation is different as long as I am training 1 to 1 for a very long period of time with the same person, that is the only reason that I gave just a 4, the course was not tailored for this type of training, but Karen was amazing helping to relate to my situation also.
Class was outstanding! Very energetic and outgoing teacher. Keep class engaged throughout. Course material was relevant to my needs and facility was great. would definitely recommend this class!
The instructor was very professional. Her knowledge and people skills are excellent. The methods she used to keep the group engaged was amazing. It was a very good training experience for me.
Really engaging -- covered everything as described and the instructor was terrific. I am coming back for another course in three months.
That course should do everybody who does training
Very engaging and informative.
Dianne was wonderful! Her patience and passion for training definitely carried over to her students. I feel prepared to hit the ground rounding!!
Lots of interaction and people felt at ease and shared quickly. Instructor made everyone feel important and valuable.
Very thorough and interactive. Dianne was fabulous. Great for those with little to no experience to those who have 10+ years of experience.
This was a great experience!
Train the Trainer with Jill was so amazing I would recommend this training to all my peers.The interactions with others in the session allowed me to open up.It allowed me to get feedback from others in my field. OH! "DID I SAY JILL WAS AMAZING!"
I really enjoyed the course. Very interactive and hands on.
This was an excellent course. Very organized and easy to gain new information as we worked through each day.
Missing an instructor for the first day out of three days. 1/3 of the time was lost due to lack of coordination and communication of AMA.
I am quite disappointed that we were without a trainer the first day. I did receive an email and phone call with an apology which is great. But I also asked about reimbursement for at least a portion of the training and have not heard back! I know that others in the class received reimbursement, so not sure why I am not able to get an answer.
I am very pleased with my experience, even with the failure to appear by our scheduled instructor. Karen stepped in and made this a wonderful experience for me! She is an amazing facilitator and I am very satisfied with the training I received!
Annette is outstanding!
Pam was a very nice instructor. I would have liked to cover more topics during each day, and not have been assigned homework (which I didn't have time to do). It would have been helpful if we worked on our presentations during class, instead of at home. It would have been useful if we reviewed the previous day's learnings.
Excellent class.The facilitator displayed a superb set of skills and managed exercises, pace and content in a way that made these three days quite an experience.
Overall I had a really great experience with the Train the Trainer course and Pamela as my instructor. She really made the training interesting and engaging. I cannot even express how excited I am to utilize the skills, concepts and feedback I obtain in my next training.
The three days of intense training went by quickly; I was never bored. There was a lot of material to absorb in three days and Pam did a great job of moving seamlessly through each section.
Instructor was quite informative. Pamela brings a wealth of knowledge to this class. The Book (Action Plan) could be better written out for easier comprehension. I was more confused by the booklets, than the instructor. A revision of the Action Plan is needed.
The training was excellent. An agenda with clear objectives was given and followed. All of the material was relevant and well put together. It was exactly what I was looking for. I believe it will be a great benefit to myself and my organization.
Pam was an outstanding facilitator. I learned so much from her training-style.

I enjoyed the program and learned a lot. I found AMA's curriculum and exercises interesting and objective. AMA's training materials and documentation are up-to-date and bring latest trends of information. Pam made everything simple and easy to understand. I wanted to buy lots of book. AMA's NYC customer service desk helped me a lot. I particularly like to mention Janet. Janet was extremely helpful.
Jill did a fantastic job with this class. The facility was very nice, clean and easy to locate.
I greatly enjoyed participating in this seminar. The instructor was very knowledgeable and constantly interacted with the class.The subject material was also very interesting and beneficial to anyone who is or plans to be a trainer for their company.
Excellent instructor that knows the material and helped me with additional material to be used for training.
I felt that this environment and course was exactly what I was looking for with expanding my knowledge on the subject matter for "Training the Trainer".
The class was well structured, the instructor, Jill, was incredible, and even though my classmates' skill sets were all very different than mine, I took a lot out of the class and will be able to use it.
Jill was amazing! I learned so much that I can take back and apply to my role at my company.
Great pacing and facilitation, brain-friendly, great participation, useful feedback
I was extremely impressed with the Training the Trainer seminar I took in Arlington, VA. The material was extremely comprehensive and applicable. The facilitator was extremely knowledgeable and fostered a great learning atmosphere for everyone. I would definitely say this is the best seminar I have ever been to and I look forward to future opportunities to attend other AMA seminars.
Annette was a fantastic teacher, and the class group was amazing. Had an overall exceptional experience there. Thank you!
I thought it was a very comprehensive course, but perhaps too much information. Our class, in general, thought the class was too fast paced. I don't think that had anything to do with the excellent instructor, but due to the amount of material that needed to be covered in 3 days. Overall, a worthwhile experience.
Pamela was an excellent facilitatior, she spent very little time lecturing and instead spent time teaching through interactive activities, which allowed learners to learn together and from each other.
Dianne is an engaging facilitator. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommended training workshop.
Dianne was an incredible and engaging presenter. The course was designed very well. There were various examples, hands-on activities and application scenarios that made the course practical and fun!
My Trainer was the best facilitator I have ever had the pleasure of learning from! I am taking away many strategies for thinking outside the box and am looking forward to applying the active learning techniques practiced in class to my new hire training as well as continuing ed. I would highly recommend this course to anyone in a training role at their organization.
Very informative and helpful. Became much more confident with tools to help me stay organized and effective!
Suggest AMA Representative provide brief fire drill emergency evacuation procedures before class begins. Let folks know where to meet outside of building in case of emergency.
Information was delivered in a relaxed, accessible manner. Nadine was thoughtful, professional and supportive. We were lucky because we had a group of participants who got along well, therefore enhancing our experience. I came away with a solid framework for a training that can be used in my workplace. If you are willing to throw yourself into the program it should give you added value personally and professionally.Thank you
Very pleased with the amount of actual tools that can be immediately used in the workplace, beyond the theory and learning.
As a very new trainer, I got a lot from the course. Specifically, I learned that before you can train, you must first develop. I think the course material was appropriate for my level.
Great seminar, with excellent insides and excellent trainer
Great hands on session with plenty of opportunities to paractice new skills!
Excellent course and applicable information for on the job usage.
Outstanding experience, the best seminar i have done by far.
The seminar was well-delivered and the content was very applicable to my current activities. Jill was excellent, a true subject matter expert.
Dr. Carroll was great. I really got a lot out of our seminar by applying what she thought me and combining with my experience during our presentation. She is a great critic and doesn't make you feel as if thou she is trying to correct you but help you see where you can improve. Looking forward to sharing what I learned with our staff.
The course definitely helped me understand adult learning principles and gave me many ideas and the confidence to perform better presentations.
If you consider yourself a good facilitator, this seminar will make you GREAT !
I enjoyed the interaction within the class. The trainer (Jill) was engaging and promoted discussion. I found it to be a very positive learning experience.
The instructor was very good. She helped to make the course enjoyable. Overall, the description of the course in the catalog did not fit what I was looking for. But I did get some value out of it.
I appreciated the interactive training. The techniques used in the training were the same being taught, which created positive reinforcement and a good understanding of the material.
We left the seminar with many proven ideas on how to better engage customers attending our online software training programs. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to learn from.
The material was informative and the instructor was great. I learned new techniques for providing positive feedback to collegues, team building exercises, and creative ways to make training interesting.
The information presented was useful, concrete, informative, interesting and relevant. I enjoyed it and learned a lot.
This was a fantastic training! The instructor was very informative and there was never a dull moment. We got to see all of the activities she was trying to teach us so they were so easy to replicate. I learned a lot from this class and so much that I can use in my current and upcoming trainings.
Great seminar. The men's room still smells like stale urine though.
The class was very beneficial for me even though I have been training for over ten years. I left the class with a renewed sense of dedication and confidence toward my training alternatives and techniques.I highly recommend this class to anyone who either train others or who manage trainers. Great class!
I genuinely had an excellent experience at this seminar, last week. The leader was a phenomenal instructor- she 100% practiced what she preached, she would alter lesson plans based on feedback the class provided the day prior and she took time to understand each of our situations, in an effort to enhance our individual learning experience!I was extremely impressed with my entire experience and will definitely be looking to sign up for future AMA classes! One thing I think would be interesting/helpful- is there anyway to see who the instructor will be ahead of time? For example, I would be extremely inclined to take another class, if Ann will be the instructor!Thank you so much,Liz KhoshabaRed Frog Events
I found the workshop to extrememly helpful in understanding the role of the Trainer. I also found the exercise to be very challenging and helpful.
Jill was an excellent trainer. She was very detailed in her explanations, a great communicator and it was an excellent learning experience. The training techniques I learned were very valuable to my current position.
The instructor was excellent and the content was exactly as I had hoped. The booklet of materials, however, was poorly organized. The slides appear at the back of the booklet and there were only a few pages for notes at the front of the booklet. I was constantly trying to find my place in the booklet because was I was flipping from the slides at the back to trying to find the correct page within the module. The slides and the notes pages should appear either directly before or directly after each module. This would greatly enhance the learning experience.
This was an excellent class for new and experienced trainers to sharpen your training skills. I was able to apply many of the techniques I learned on my first day back in the office. Our instructor, Anne, was wonderful and provided some great insights and constructive feedback.
