Train the Trainer Training Course Reviews:

"Ann is insightful, a purposeful communicator and creates an enjoyable training experience. I found the 3 day course challenging and worthwhile. I have come away with plenty of ideas, as well as direction for developing particular skills (e.g. "dot points", practice and preparation, session management) and attitudes (e.g. focus and do not stray)."

All in all a very motivating and positive experience. Thank you Joe."

The facilities were near perfect and all staff were professional and courteous. Many Thanks!!"

-Landmark - NSW


"What i really took from this course is the communication styles and approaches which Josh took us through, and though they can be categorized as 'trainer training' i think we will all use them in a broader sense, when we are running brainstorms, selling in new ideas to clients and internal teams."

"Loved Josh he did a great job at an engaging practical class."

-Healthcare Professionals Group


"Derrick was a fantastic, well rounded trainer and role model. Not only did Derrick, keep us energized, enthused, and engaged for three days, he believed in us completing and growing as Trainers. I'm a 24 year old, Sales Manager from SponsoredlinX, who was underdeveloped and lacking in quiet a few key strategy's and techniques on how to facilitate training in such a high paced environment, with an array of participants. Derrick stayed patient, friendly and dedicated molding and manipulating the training around my specific needs as a Sales Trainer selling Google. Derrick was very caring and considerate when I had time restraints and prior commitments. In saying this, all content was completed. He is fantastic at time management focus. Not only did I learn what drives me in a work environment,but also my peers, students and superiors. This information will be passed through the whole sales team to create a HEALTHIER/more SUSTAINABLE workplace. Derrick has opened my eyes to a lot in the field that I was other-wise blinded to. He is not only a fantastic trainer with results and curriculum, he is an inspiration to us all in the industry, taking a basic sales trainer, and transforming him into a polished, organised, respected manager. Please pass on these messages to Derrick, he's a "bloody ripper of a role model. The Things I will be taking away from the course - Train the Trainer. *Profiling - Learning how to understand your own drivers, so you can openly communicate with others who share different or the same learning styles. *Presentation skills...ALWAYS BEING PREPARED, AND HAVING A BACK UP *Time management - Condensing down your training to ensure maximum engagement from your audience. *How to read and understand body language, voice perceptions/tonality's, how to talk and be in control and show assertiveness through your training presentation. *Maximizing training, with well planned and progressive material. - Always working towards a goal, and communicating effective messages. *The most important thing I learnt however was respect for my fellow trainer. (what a hard job with me and Denesh, and all those questions and problems that needed answering). -I am sure he took as much away from the training as I did. I've grabbed Derricks business card, and will be referring him on to other business's and defiantly my own for future training with my fellow workers. He would surely be able to continue and express some great patterns through the large team.



"Helen conducted an excellent training session which was engaging and interactive. The small class size was a key part of being engaged with other participants and the trainer.

-SPM Assets Pty Ltd


"Both the trainer and other trainees were excellent. It foster a dynamic learning environment. Much appreciated."

-Roche Diagnostics Australia


"I find the course very interesting and well presented.


-RSM Australia Pty Ltd


"The opportunity to have the training come into our own facilities and tailor the training to our particularly needs made it invaluable."



"I really enjoyed the training. I am looking forward to putting into practice the skills learnt during training and feel they will benefit me in undertaking successful training into the future. Thank you."

-Australian Fisheries Management Authority


"Very helpful and enjoyable. Directly relevant to me. I'm now looking forward to training my colleagues whereas before I was not."

I found the course was very helpful and informative. The Indigenous Cultural Diversity trainer was extremely helpful with his knowledge on indigenous training. I enjoyed his style of training. The trainer for "Making Live Training Lively" was very helpful and I also enjoyed her style of training. She was very switched on and spoke from experience. Julie was extremely informative, and made the training lively. (Customised Training Course).

In-House Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
