TTF TRAIN THE TRAINER: TEACHING TECHNIQUES AND PRESENTATION SKILLS
The IATSE Entertainment and Exhibition Industries Training Trust Fund launched our customized TTF Train the Trainer program in 2015. By way of this program, we are building the capacity of locals to offer safety and skills training to IATSE workers. The purpose is to create new safety and skills trainers along with 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.
The TTF Train the Trainer: Teaching Techniques and Presentation Skills workshop is a free, two-day training that covers effective teaching techniques, learning styles, training design, and lesson planning. Ample time for practice is provided. It is a rigorous, information-packed, and rewarding two days where participants have the opportunity to learn and network with new and existing IATSE safety and craft skills trainers from around the US and Canada.
This workshop was 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.
What is it?
The TTF Train the Trainer: Teaching Techniques and Presentation Skills (the original TTF Train the Trainer) is a general workshop for subject matter experts who teach at the local level on how to prepare for and conduct successful safety and skills training.

What do you do in the training?
Over the course of two days, topics such as effective instruction and presentation techniques, curriculum design, adult learning theory, and coaching skills will be addressed. The workshop will also allow for ample time to practice the skills being addressed.
How do people apply?
Local unions are invited to nominate up to three IATSE workers from their local to attend our two-day customized TTF Train the Trainer workshop (number of nominees varies based on location). Nominees should be IATSE workers who wish to become new safety or skills trainers for your local and who you will use to conduct safety or skills training. Individuals who already conduct safety or skills training for the local are also encouraged to attend. The application must be filled out and signed by an elected local union officer (e.g., president, secretary treasurer, BA) or the training coordinator. Applications received directly from individuals wanting to attend will not be accepted.
Is there a cost?
The two day workshop itself is free of charge for participants. The IATSE Training Trust Fund cannot, however, cover the costs for travel, lodging*, meals or per diems associated with travel, or participation in this workshop.
