This is a highly engaging and interactive two-day workshop which explores how any trainer can increase involvement and learning retention by using the instructor led/participant-centred approach to training.

This program will provide value for trainers of all ages and experience levels. Seasoned trainers will learn new ways to engage and enliven audiences with 102 alternatives to lecture and those new to the training profession will obtain a great foundation on how to use creative training techniques to attract and maintain the interest of their audiences. This is a workshop designed to free participants from boring and unproductive sessions and unlock the true potential of every group.

Ultimately, it is a fun, fast-paced, ‘how-to’ driven workshop, which promises dozens of innovative techniques and activities that can be immediately applied to the participants’ own training situations. Furthermore, the Train-the-Trainer Boot Camp offers extensive world-class research to support the models and techniques experienced, thus providing the ‘know how’ with the ‘how to’!

MRWED are the exclusive Australian Licensees for the Train-the-Trainer Boot Camp and are proud to offer this two-day program, which has become the world’s most respected train-the-trainer program. To date, more than 200,000 participants have attended worldwide and are now benefiting from dramatically improved design and delivery in their own training programs. The Boot Camp has its origins in the best-selling book The Creative Training Techniques™ Handbook by Bob Pike, which has sold over 300,000 copies globally. Bob is the pioneer of the participant-centred approach which forms the basis of the Boot Camp learning experience.


What is Participant-Centred Training?

The key focus in the participant-centred training is to assist participants in developing their own answers through applying tools and techniques, using reference materials and tapping into their own resources (as well as those of their colleagues) to reach solutions that work in the training session as well as on the job. Our participant-centred methods provide a supportive environment for participant exploration and discovery, so the insights they gain will truly be theirs, as well as the self-confidence that comes from those discoveries.

  • Increase retention by more than 90%
  • Decrease design and training time by more than 25%
