How to Create a Class – Train the Trainer Workshops

Resume Confidence offers a series of 4 Create a Class: Train the Trainer Workshops to teach any professional how to present clear content that’s informative, interesting AND fun!

Start with the Intro/Overview Class and continue on with the Advanced Topics, specialized to specific components of the intro course in the continuing series.


Many solopreneurs & other professionals want to expand their individual client services to working with groups to:

  • Build their reputation in their field & establish their expertise in their industry
  • Reach more clients & help more people, reach out to the community
  • Generate another income stream
  • Offer a way for clients to get to know you before committing to 1-1 work together
  • Plus, maximize YOUR time and reach by offering classes

You know your stuff, you’re well versed in  your field and great at what you do – but the idea of putting together a class curriculum and teaching or presenting that material intimidates or overwhelms you.

No problem – I know how to do that!  Come learn from a long time teacher, workshop leader and corporate trainer.

Introductory/Overview Workshop: 


Create a Class:  How to Present Clear Content That’s InformativeInteresting, AND Fun!

This  will explain and demonstrate:

  • How to determine your content & focus
  • How to structure and present that information in a way that’s clear, holds attention, aides retention AND is entertaining
  • Generate ideas for hands-on, practical application activities to reinforce learning (and keep people awake!)


Advanced Create a Class/Train the Trainer Workshop Series:  All advanced courses are topics covered in the Introductory Create a Class but go into more depth & are very interactive.  These workshops offer an opportunity for participants to delve into creating their own class with input and feedback from the group and instructor.


Attending the Introductory Create a Class workshop is helpful, but not required to come to any of the Advanced series workshops.


Create Clear Content: Develop clear outlines & plans for your signature class or series of classes based on your purpose, target audience, and desired end result(s) (as discussed in the Introductory Create a Class workshop). 


Create Class Activities:  Plan engaging, interesting components that address all 3 learning styles – visual, auditory, & kinesthetic to increase comprehension, retention, and hold interest.  Includes ice-breakers & warm ups ideas.


Create Consistent Marketing: Write your advertising materials & subtly ‘sell’ during your classes to spark continued interest in your offers.
