WORKPLACE TRAINING FOCUS OF UH CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM

Efficient training is essential for any workplace. Teaching employees about an organization’s mission, vision, policies and practices is instrumental in meeting goals and increasing productivity. The success of any training program, however, often is dependent on the trainer.

To prepare both new and experienced trainers, the University of Houston is hosting the Trainer Certificate Program. This series of workshops, presented by UH’s Human Development & Consumer Sciences (HDCS) department, will be led by award-winning training professionals and UH faculty.

The program is split into four workshop modules that will be conducted from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at UH’s Isabel C. Cameron Building. Dates and module topics are as follows:

- Sept. 7 and 14: Foundations of Workplace Learning
- Sept. 28 and October 5: Designing & Developing Effective Training
- Oct. 19 and 26: Delivering a Positive Learning Experience
- Nov. 9 and 16: Evaluating Training

For every module completed, students will receive 1.2 continuing education units that can be applied to a master of science in Human Resources Development, should participants decide to enroll in UH’s program.

The registration fee for each module is $750 and $2,750 for the entire program. To register, call 713-743-1060 or visit www.uh.edu/continuingeducation.
