Train the Trainer: Teaching and Presentation Techniques in New York, NY

  • United Scenic Artists Local USA 829 29 West 38th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)

The Train the Trainer: Teaching and Presentation Techniques workshop is designed to take IATSE workers who are experts in their craft who are or will be training at their local and teaches them education and training techniques to improve their presentation and sharpen their skills as teachers.

The two-day training covers effective teaching techniques, learning styles, training design, and lesson planning for new safety and craft skills trainers while providing new training techniques to existing trainers. This is a training with something for everyone that is accessible and applicable to all crafts and trainers - new and experienced - with ample time for practice. It is a rigorous, information-packed, and rewarding two days where participants have the opportunity to learn, work, and network with new and existing IATSE worker-trainers from around the US and Canada.

Local unions are invited to nominate up to three IATSE workers from their local to attend our two-day, customized Train the Trainer workshop. Your nominees should be IATSE workers who already are safety or craft skills trainers for your local or individuals who will become new safety or craft skills trainers for the local. Click here for more information.
