In the beginning of 2017, all people who work at CERN and are trainers in one of the CERN Learning Programmes were asked to complete a survey. Following the analysis of the results, the CERN Learning Board decided that a “Training for trainers” would be a response to a large part of the issues raised, and recommended to organise a pilot session, which took place in the Autumn.


Following the positive feedback, and after some minor adjustments, we are happy to be able to propose now this course to all present and future trainers.
We are also happy to propose you this training free of charge for your department.


You will find here are the details about this course, and a link to enrol :
