  1. This course is intended to be used by Precise course designers and/or instructors as a method to teach other instructors to teach Precise subject courses. As the leader of a subject course “Train the Trainer” session you will need to make a few modifications to this presentation to reflect the information you will be training. This should be done well before the presentation of this course in the classroom. For most slides in this course there are specific instructions as well as suggestions and tips in the speaker’s notes area. You should carefully review these as you prepare the presentation. This should be done and reviewed multiple times before you present the course in the classroom. The instructor of this course should spend time becoming familiar with the Precise Instructional Design Guide and the Precise Instructional Design PowerPoint template. All subject courses will adhere to the ID Guide and will be developed in the template Instruction underlying this slide should accomplish: Convince Trainers that they need to do careful planning and implement any course changes well ahead of the date of course presentation Provision of ample context and history for the Precise training program and in particular the course the trainer will learn to train Instructor should: Announce the Course name Discuss the history of Precise Discuss the history of the program Discuss the strategy behind the program Explain why partners have been selected to participate © Copyright Precise Software Solutions 2010
