Train the trainer course

Develop your trainer skills in 6 months

Inspire and motivate people to achieve. Adapting your training approach to the trainee or group by making contact, empathising and working together. Presenting, convincing and using your creativity. But also being independent, critical and defending your own point of view. To deliver effective training, as a trainer you need more than just knowledge of the subject matter. Namely a number of competencies to get your trainees on board. During the Learnit trainer training we pay a lot of attention to these competences and skills. In addition, you are introduced to a number of creative methods and you learn how to apply these directly in your training. For example online training, a training form that is becoming more and more popular.

The Train the trainer course is ideal for those who want to specialise in the field of training in a relatively short time, but do not have the time to follow a full-time course. In six months' time, you will learn everything there is to know about training: from preparation to implementation to evaluation. By bringing in cases and material from your daily practice, you will get the most out of the training.

There are also two webinars to further deepen the lessons.

Return day

Learning by doing. That is the central theme of all our training courses. In a safe training atmosphere, we practice with small groups (max. 8 participants per training) realistic situations from your daily practice. The more questions and cases you bring in, the more results you will get from the training. In this way, you will discover during the training programme which training techniques and forms of training are best suited to you, and you will be able to further develop your practical skills immediately. Our trainers combine didactic skills with their practical experience.


The training is provided in Dutch as standard. The trainer has a good command of the English language. Use can be made of course material in English. With a minimum of three participants, the training can also be provided entirely in English.

- Train the trainer

"My intention to train more interactively has succeeded. I noticed that I paid attention to the questions of the participants, but quickly went on with my material, in order to fully cover my own content. I have grown to let go of the content and to respond more to the questions of the participants, linking my knowledge to this, which invited and stimulated participants to contribute more. The result was a more interactive way of enriching knowledge and bonding with the participants. Top! Thank you very much." - Rating: 9.0
