Training Delivery

PDM has an excellent track record as a first class deliverer of training to a wide range of clients. Training can be defined as the process by which people acquire new skills or knowledge for the purpose of enhancing performance. The purpose of training is to produce efficient, timely and cost effective learning that has been tailored to meet the identified need. Activities must be well managed, relevant, and accessible and must utilise new technologies in innovative ways.

The delivery phase of training is when the coordination, assessment of learning needs, design, and development phases come together. Successful training delivery depends on:

  • Accurate identification of participants' training needs.
  • A carefully crafted training plan.
  • Well-managed training details.
  • Thorough and relevant materials.
  • A prepared trainer, ready to present a compelling learning experience.

There are, of course, a wide variety of instructional methods including: presentation, skills practice, and e-learning; each one designed to meet a particular need in a specific situation or context. For example, training can be delivered in a classroom, on the job or remotely. In addition, careful account must be taken of different learning styles and all of this presents a challenge to deliver training to meet sometimes complex objectives.

Benefits of Using PDM

PDM prides itself on its ability to be a single source provider of the complete range of training activities:

  • PDM has a successful track record of delivering training for a variety of clients that include MoD, Oshkosh Trucks, Network Rail and the Highways Agency.
  • All PDM trainers are Subject Matter Experts (SME) and always know what they are talking about rather than reading directly from pre-prepared notes. This also means they are able to tackle on the spot issues that a generic trainer may not be able to understand or deal with correctly. All of our trainers have an armed forces background, have security clearance, and are used to working with a broad range of student ability levels. In short, their credibility is unquestionable.
  • PDM is able to take a strategic view of training requirements to ensure they are consistent and fully integrated with client’s needs and systems. Working with the client from scoping, Training Needs Analysis (TNA), development of training courses and material, incorporating the latest delivery technologies, provides the client with tailored training, exactly where and how they require it.
  • Working with the client in this way gives them confidence that their training solution is cost effective, efficient, timely and well managed.

PDM is always on hand to ensure that any solution it recommends works and works well.
