Training Design and Development

Training is defined as an activity that aims to impart the specific skills, knowledge and attitudes required by an individual in order to perform a task or job.

Training Design is a core capability at PDM and we have highly trained, specialist designers with experience in the both the defence and commercial sectors. Training Design is a stage in the development of training and involves the following key stages:

  • Event Design – the culmination of research and planning to meet the objective.
  • Event Walkthrough – a trial run to ensure that the objective can be met.
  • Pilot – an event trial run with students to confirm content and timings.
  • Course Approval – confirmation that the course meets the client’s requirements.

A thoroughly researched Course Design content with quality input from highly experienced Subject Matter Experts ensures that clients receive the most efficient and cost effective training programmes, on time and to budget.

Benefits Value for Money, Increased Productivity and Enhanced Efficiency

  • Cost benefit analysis of the training options are much more accurate. Over training or under training is avoided, increasing efficiency and reducing cost.
  • Auditable decision making process provides managers with greater confidence in the training solution, which enhances “buy-in”.
  • The process of analysing group and individual tasks reduces the likelihood of critical tasks being omitted, which might result in lost productivity.
  • Options for introducing modern training methods utilising the latest learning technologies can be included.
