Abaris Train-the-Trainer ProgramJune 27th, 2022 by Lou Dorworth
Did you know that Abaris offers a training program for individuals that want to teach composite related subjects? Our nine-day Certified Composite Instructor: Level I course is the answer for many persons who are currently teaching, or those who wish to teach subjects related to advanced composite materials, manufacturing, or repair. This course is designed to allow a dedicated student to be able to instruct at his/her home organization to the level of Abaris Training standards.
This program of instruction is designed to train each person how to teach advanced composite subjects with the technical expertise and confidence necessary to engage their own students. The focus of the first week of the course is the science of teaching. It begins with a comprehensive examination of course development strategies using a systems approach to training (SAT) followed by lessons and exercises specifically aimed at training adult students. The second week of the course builds on the first week’s activities by focusing on teaching composite-specific subjects where the accuracy of the information presented is emphasized.
Students will develop and present PowerPoint® presentations to their peers in class every day. Each presentation will be recorded, reviewed, and constructive feedback will be provided by the group. At the end of the course, students will be furnished a copy of their presentations and metrics showing their progression in the course.
