Timing issues

Overview

Anne Bradbury, L&D Consultant Last Published  24 March 2014

As a trainer, managing timings is essential in helping course participants to get the most out of their training. When people attend training, they expect it to start and finish at the agreed times. If a course overruns, then participants can become distracted as they start to think about the potential problems this may cause with transport and prior commitments. 

It is also important to run each section of the course within the designated time to avoid running out of time on important topics.
