Staying competitive and relevant in the “new normal” age of pandemic requires upping your game and acquiring new skills.
BCI has developed a new Training of Online Trainers (TOOT) Master Class. This class is great for anyone who has to conduct online training for adults. You should take this class if you are:
• A member of an NGO who regularly conducts workshops;
• Someone who wants to expand your global audience for training programs;
• An organisation that has donor funded training programs;
• A team or individual switching your in-person training programs to an online platform.
The course consists of three different modules delivered by a multilingual team of expert trainers. You can buy all three or pick and choose those in which you are most interested.
This module is designed to provide the fundamentals of adult learning for trainers. It examines techniques to ensure your trainees are provided the most effective learning opportunities. We blend traditional elements of Training of Trainer (TOT) programs with new dimensions related to online platforms.
- Ice Breakers
- Setting Expectations and Ground Rules
- Understanding Training and Building Competence
- Building Online Competence
- Memory Triggering Tools
This is a must for experienced and inexperienced TOT trainers; a refresher and new skills for the experienced and a solid start for the inexperienced trainer.
Module II drills deep into tools and techniques employed in an online training environment. Online training presents some significant challenges because you can’t “feel the room” or adapt to in-person cues. But the online environment also presents a great deal of opportunity that is richly explored in this session.
- Creating a Receptive Online Environment
- Utilizing Online Platforms
- Preparing Your Group Presentation (presentation to trainer and group)
In this final module we will explore session planning, design, and execution. With on-line training, there is a great deal to plan, practice, and adapt for specific audiences. Being effective at mapping that learning journey is the essence of this course.
- Session Designs
- Isolating and Defining Learning Objectives
- Architecture of Session Mapping
- Mastering Learning Cycles
We will offer this Master Class over three (3) days beginning the last Friday of each month*.
We can provide bespoke training for groups of four or more, please contact us to discuss how we can schedule your group, at times that work best for you.
* BCI reserves the right to change schedules, and where it warrants, provide credit for future sessions or refunds where appropriate. We will make every effort to keep to scheduled programming, but as we have come to know – life can be interrupted.
We are immediately able to provide the course for English, Arabic, French, and Hungarian speaking audiences. In classes with mixed audiences we will only be able to provide instruction in one language but can potentially arrange translation. Beyond the languages listed, if you or a group have other language needs get in touch with us and we’ll try to accommodate your preferred language.
For the entire three-days course the cost is €300* per individual participant. If you book a group of 4 or more the cost is €200 per participant. Each session is limited to 15 participants, please contact us if your group is larger than 15 persons and we can provide both bespoke schedules and discounts.
Taking each module separately is €125 per participant per module, or €105 per participant for groups of four or more.

What You Need
First, you need a desire for adult learning, training, and creating dynamic workshop environments.
Secondly, you will need access to the internet, preferably with a desktop or laptop computer. Mobile devices will work, but the small screens of smart phones, for example, may limit your experience.
Finally, you will need a quiet place somewhere where your cheering and clapping won’t disturb others around you!! A library – not a good place.
