NATCA Hosts Inaugural Train the Trainer Course
Members from the Reloaded and National Training Committees gathered for the first “Train the Trainer” course at the NATCA National Office in Washington. The course, which was developed by The LABOR School at Penn State and taught by Penn State instructors, was designed to help NATCA Academy instructors and committee members improve their skills as trainers and facilitators. In the course, attendees discussed adult learning styles, methods of developing and presenting training with impact, classroom management, and communication techniques that can improve learning retention and guarantee successful application beyond the classroom. The National Training Committee will continue to work with Penn State to refine the course material and create a course that will ultimately be taught through the NATCA Academy.
