In terms of individual training design, CMBD is a small company that provides a wide range of training solutions through a large pool of specialist independent trainers many of whom are practitioners of their specialist subject in their own practices.
All workshop and programmes have clearly defined learning outcomes which are shared with learners and companies when then enquire about a course, for in-house provision these are almost always altered in some way to accommodate the company’s particular challenges or working practices.
The trainer liaises with the client and agrees both lesson plan and learning outcomes prior to actual training takes place. The use of specialist practitioners as trainers is particularly useful in this regard because clients are not always sure what they need and the trainer is able to offer expert and up to date guidance.
