Course Reviews

  • Bobbie K., Vice President, Human Resources, Oxford Bank Jul 24, 2020

    I learned so much from this training course. I really enjoyed how interactive it was along with all the different topics. I really liked how it went in order of the process of training from start to finish. I wish we went more into detail on the evaluation piece of training.

  • Amanda W., Training and Development Manager, Oxford Bank Jul 24, 2020

    This course is great for someone coming in to training and development that has some background or base to training. It is helpful to have an entire toolkit of information and was very eye opening on how to be a better and more effective facilitator.
