Just completed the Cambridge Train The Trainer course through IH Lima and had a very positive experience. As it was online (Zoom) due to Covid-19, I was able to attend from Tokyo, Japan and it didn't even feel like remote learning. I found the Director helpful and answered any questions I had quickly and efficiently. The course itself was intensive but was well managed and the content was practical and interesting. The other participants were knowledgeable and motivated and I looked forward to each day of the course. I highly recommend.

Will the fact that I’ve taken Train the Trainer online appear on my certificate?

No. Train the Trainer online leads to exactly the same certificate as the face-to-face programme. Assessed outcomes are the same for all trainees, so there is no need for separate certification.
