Training Design

One size does not fit all when it comes to training. Online, instructor-led, synchronous, asynchronous, blended learning, workshops, courses and manuals…the possibilities are endless.  Wakeford & Associates can assist you with your training needs and provide guidance throughout the design process.

Doorway to opportunityWe understand the needs of adult learners.  Our training is designed to draw on the life experience of participants.  Activities are goal oriented and the information presented is practical, relevant and interactive.  All course material, manuals and training documents are written using clear language.
