How it works
You’ll receive course materials that consist of a 67 page participant manual. It also contains all exercises, tests and further reading required.
We also include 84 Powerpoint Slides. Together, these materials provide trainers and managers with all the content needed to successfully deliver this course content to others.
We are also delighted to include a 70 page facilitator manual and 14 Expert Training Guides that will further help you deliver this course in facilitation skills.
“The modules are certainly still proving useful. Every day I think of another use for them, they have come at just the right time, really excellent value for money – the complexity and depth in the materials mean we can mix and max Powerpoint presentations to suit our audience’s levels and requirements.”

“As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak.
I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers of their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal.
One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials.”
