6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Brad Koenig on April 17, 2001
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very beneficial. The first section emphasizes the value of training programs by giving specific examples of struggling businesses which were aided by training programs. In another section, Nilson explores how to set up a training plan by using a business plan format. Each step of the way is thoroughly explained with helpful tips on how to make each step successful. In addition, Nelson offers suggestions on specific training methods. This book gives a practical insight into starting your own training program. Not only does she give advice, but she follows it up with specific details. These insights are backed by personal experiences. I highly recommend this book.

How to Start a Training Program/ Carolyn Nilson

What a great book. Definitely, a book I would recommend for any training program. A systematic guide on how to start a training program from training policy and standards to needs analysis and delivery and presentation tips. One of my favorite parts of the book was chapter 9 Delivery options and presentation tips, where it points out several different presentation and training methods and discusses each one. I also liked the train the trainer section where it gives you all the topics that need to be discussed while conducting the training. This is a great guide and I am very happy I bought it.
