This book does what all good training programs should do--it practices what it preaches. Carliner excels as a teacher of best practices because he writes in a way that enables you to understand and apply key concepts immediately. --Graham Higgins, Manager, Learning & Development Group, Cathay Pacific Airways, Hong Kong
Training Design Basics provides a clear 'back to basics' perspective that both new and experienced training designers will welcome. The step-by-step instructional design process offered by this book will be invaluable to both trainers and non-trainers as they work to build high-quality classroom training. --Ed Cohen, Senior Director, Center for Performance Excellence, Booz Allen Hamilton
