    HR Professionals – APICS can help improve the operation management skills of your employees. 

    The Winnipeg chapter of APICS provides a comprehensive education program consisting of courses and training seminars to improve employee skills in a wide variety of operation management fields. Our courses target front line employees, supervisors and management personnel and focus on providing each of these groups with the knowledge that they need in today's competitive business environment.

    We offer evening classes and seminars throughout the year and can also provide in-house training at your workplace. In addition, we can also provide a customized training program for your company or organization on request.

    Our Education Programs:
    Train the Trainer (TTT) – A workshop to develop your employees who will be asked to train others in your organization. The Train the Trainer workshop is an intense, hands-on 18-hour workshop. Participants will be shown and will practice tried and true methods that can help them to become effective instructors.

    The class reviews basic training techniques and the four 'must' rules of effective training. It provides common sense suggestions for using a variety of presentation media and helpful hints on room set-up. The question of why and how different people learn is examined.
    The most powerful tools for improving participant training skills are the 5 and 10-minute participant presentations. Each session is videotaped, reviewed and critiqued.

    The APICS Train the Trainer workshop was created to teach training skills to anyone who will be teaching others. It provides a successful and workable methodology that can be applied to any training situation. The confidence and technical ability gained from TTT will lend authority to presentations at work and in all of your activities.
